CUNY+ weirdness

Is it just me or has anyone else noticing some real weirdness in CUNY+ right now. In both our local catalog and the union catalog, I get the strangest result after doing a "title begins with" search for "gotham." The search shows the full title of the book I'm looking for, Gotham a history of New York City to 1898, but when I click on the title, I get a completely unrelated list of 18 different records (none of even have the word "Gotham" in the title). What's even weirder is that when I click on one of those records (say, "Plants Database") I get the full record for a completely different item: Apology, Crito, Phaedo, Symposium, Republic, translated by B. Jowett; edited, with introduction, by Louise Ropes Loomis.

It could be because of the reindexing they are doing as they are getting everything ready for Aleph v. 16.

As of Friday afternoon, the weirdness has ended and the problem fixed (what a relief).
