I am seeing dozens of complaints on Twitter. Google AdWords is replying to folks that they are looking into it.

Google said on Twitter:

I'll get in touch with our product team and will keep you posted on this.

Of course, with the recent changes to the Keyword Planner people are very very nervous.

Forum discussion at Twitter.
