Hi there,

Since early this year, more and more reporting requests give a HTTP 400 
(Bad Request) result. The very same report request has been issued 
thousands of times before without problems. According to the* reporting 
documentation 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/guides/reporting#response_codes>*
 
a HTTP 400 means an illegal report definition, but this is not the case. 
Maybe the intended result was HTTP 500, meaning an intermittent problem, 
but... we got HTTP 400.

Can someone tell what's going on? And should our software also attempt a 
retry on HTTP 400?!
Thanks in advance!

Sample problems this morning:

(Oh, and please don't delete this message just because it has customer ids 
in. No stranger should be able to retrieve any information with just these 
IDs and no login. Also realize that AdWords support in both Dublin and 
Amsterdam send out those ids -and much more information- over non-secure 
email.)
