This is still happening, but not all the time. Some actor/actress details come through fine and others are a jumble of code.
No real indication of why, as some actor's details are brand new on IMDb, while others are actors that have been around since IMDb started, so it doesn't seem to be that the detail format has changed @ IMDb.
It's just so random, being about 35% good details, 65% scrambled details.
Hopefully Bolide can take a look at what's going on??
