I have caught blockexplorer.com not upgrading to a Bitcoin 0.6.0. As a result it is seeing lots of chain reorgs since April 1st (I contacted Theymos already - he is going to upgrade tomorrow):

I am curious in anybody else is seeing side effects caused by P2SH since April 1st?

There are clearly people purposefully sending invalid P2SH transactions on the network, and this is causing some miners who failed to upgrade to waste resources mining on top of invalid blocks. This in turns caused the network to lose about 1-2 Th/s since April 1st:

the iMine botnet (presumably) is not producing 1-tx-blocks any more (afaik not a side effect of p2sh directly, but of the fabricated invalid transactions).
