Was this a Bug? Adjusted Crawl Numbers

Not sure what to make of this. Yesterday I saw a doubling of the Google crawl rates on one of my site, as mentioned in the post Google-Bot going crazy. Today, I see an adjusted crawl rate, and updated with the newest data for this site. However, what happened with the earlier reported numbers of crawls? Pay extra attention to the scales below!

Today:

So what happened to the high number of crawls from the day before? Given the amount of flux going on in the G index, this smells fishy! BTW, this is consistent across different sites, different Google webmaster accounts, and different regions.

Google-Bot going crazy

Anybody checked their stats already in Google Webmaster Central? Seems Google bot is spending quite some time on my sites, where more pages are getting crawled per day starting somewhere last week.

Obviously, the whole SEO industry is buzzing about algorithm changes and MAYDAY updates.
