Is anyone else noticing that Google is starting to show serious growing pains?

I have been experiencing problems with Google search recently. I perused the Google forums and found some 100 other posts since the first of the year. The problem is simple enough: lately the Googlebot has either been missing sites, or sites with long (and Terms of Service compliant) histories have been dropped completely from the index, sitemaps do little or nothing to help, Webmaster tools are slower than ever or not accurate at all, etc.

Not to mention that despite the fact that they have some of the smartest people in the country, they can not seem to fix their own maps (visit here http://groups.google.com/group/google-maps-current-issues/

browse_thread/thread/5340bedab81aa0c8).

What is going on? Is this as widespread as I think?
