Criteria report now returns keywordPlacement='*' instead of keywordPlacement='All products' HK 7/16/12 9:53 AM

Hi,
 
On 7/14, the criteria report (using v201109) returned keywordPlacement='All products' for a product target, but on 7/15, it comes back as keywordPlacement='*'. This is breaking the reports for a large number of our customers. Is this a permanent change or a glitch? I hope it's a glitch as these types of changes are hopefully reserved for future versions.
 
More details:
 
<row adGroupID='12341234' keywordID='12341234' campaignID='12341234' keywordPlacement='*' criteriaType='Product' keywordPlacementState='enabled' maxCPC='1000000' maxCPM='--' firstPageCPC='0' qualityScore='5'/>
 
<row adGroupID='12341234' keywordID='12341234' campaignID='12341234' keywordPlacement='All products' criteriaType='Product' keywordPlacementState='enabled' maxCPC='1000000' maxCPM='--' firstPageCPC='0' qualityScore='5'/>
 
This is blocking a number of our customers, so a quick answer would be much appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Hans

Hi Hans,
  This was an unintentional change.  We are working on a fix and hope to have this resolved soon.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks for confirming this, Kevin. Any idea if we are talking hours or days before a fix is implemented?

Hi Hans,
  We're hoping to have a fix in place early next week, due to push cycles.

Thanks, Kevin. The sooner the better. We have around 50 accounts blocked by this since 7/12.
