It goes back and forth. I posted this yesterday, but it seems that it
did not go through. I'll try again :

For those still interested in "Google linguistics" : Google is still
unstable, and its various data centers are divided in three different
groups with very different results. Clearly the update is a difficult one !

If you want to see a snapshot, I made one this morning :

The good news is that in the DC group that seems to be updated (e.g.
66.102.7.104), the "*" operator seems to work as it used to.

Try this search:

http://66.102.7.104/search?hl=en&lr=&c2coff=1&q=%22the+*+cat%22&btnG=Search

But who knows what will be the stable state if there is one, after this
Saint-Vitus dance ?
