FindPopularItems no longer working?

I know that FindPopularItems has been deprecated since a while but it was still working. Now it always returns "No match found for your query". Do you know if it's only a temporary glitch? Any idea how to replace that call? I know about getMostWatchedItems but it only takes a category id. I need to find popular items by keywords. Any input appreciated...

@nalf3 : No, I didn't open a ticket. I have a contact at eBay and we're trying to see if the API team can repair this call, despite it being deprecated. I'm not sure if we're making progress yet, but we're trying....

Fantastic Helios! I'm glad you have contacted Ebay about that. You have opened a ticket? Maybe I should do the same to put a little more pressure...

Hey Michelle: Good to see you again! Glad you're still out there. I've been meaning to email you for like, eons... FPI- still busted, but partially working at the moment. Still LOTS of items missing from the responses. Just a few token items being returned. I can't tell whether it's being worked on or not. Maybe just flailing about as it dies for good? I know it's officially deprecated. Got it. Still, I've been in touch with eBay to see if it still can be resuscitated for a while longer...
