Google AdSense Site Diagnostics Tool Bug?

Reported by Gabs at Search Engine Roundtable Forums, it appears that Google AdSense's Site Diagnostics report is showing some weird errors. Here is a screen capture:


It appears the ads are trying to be generated via the Google Cache, example cache link in report shows us that it is the Google Cache. And we know that the robots.txt file at Google disallows spiders from crawling those pages.

So now they are coming up in our site diagnostic reports, making a big mess for data some publishers might really need.
