Weird Google suggestion

I was going to search for "I'm not okay lyrics". I started typing at Google's toolbar, and stopped at the word "not". The suggestions were screwed! Instead of displaying things starting with "I'm not", they were things like "I S not okay". All starting with "I S" instead of "I'm". Any idea of why was that happening? I think it's because of the ' symbol, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, you're right..
same here:
google.com/webhp?complete=1&am ...

I have no idea why this happens..

BTW, another strange results appear when you type for : " Im not ". it offers you : " is not here for your entertainment " as the first result.

Nice find Zim :)

They've sorted the apostrophe problem in Docs now. Dosn't look like they have in other products though :-)

What did happened with Docs?

The spell checker placed 'null' instead of an apostrophe (').
eg. Disn't should change to didn't
   but instead changed to didnullt
