Missing diagnostics in "select * from html..." queries?

A YQL screen-scraping query (select * from html ...) inconsistently returns the proper diagnostic info.

Observe the default query in the YQL Console:
http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/#h=...path%3D%27//div[@id%3D%22yfi_headlines%22]/div[2]/ul/li/a%27

Hit the TEST button a few times and watch the full diagnostic info randomly disappear, replaced by a single "publiclyCallable" property.

If this a known issue, what is a suggested workaround?

  • This is a bug with the current release. It only effects the display of the informational diagnostics elements and not the actual processing or behavior of the underlying queries.

    There is no workaround apart from creating an open data table and putting the diagnostics information back into the OUTPUT of the table.

  • The regression appears to have been fixed, as the diagnostic info now displays correctly.

    Thank you for the quick turnaround on the bug fix.
