That sounds like it might be related to bug 696:

The Stable and Guard flags are not really being assigned according to
the spec, in the v3 networkstatus docs. The current theory is that this
is due to corruption in the measurements file for some of the authorities.

We could delete those garbage measurements files and it would probably
recover. But then we'd have less of a chance to figure out what the bug
was, so it would happen again sometime.

Alas, we're busy working on other features right now, so that bug is
getting left alone. Soon I hope! :)
