Google Checkout Bug: Shopping Cart Icons Shown on All Ads

It appears that the Google Checkout icon feature was flipped on for all ads earlier today. The first report of the bug was issued at WebmasterWorld at 7:55 AM (EST), and then more reports starting trickling in. Now the bug seems to be patched, but it took about an hour and thirty minutes to fix it.

SearchViews captured a screen shot of their reprise media sponsored listings sporting a little blue shopping cart icon.
