Is Android Market Paid-Apps System Blocking New Merchants?

It seems that Android and paid apps just don't seem to get along as they should. What with Dev Phone 1 users getting locked out, some users not having access to paid apps, it's definitely been a rocky start for paid apps. Now news comes in that developers are having trouble linking merchant accounts to their Android developer accounts, which leaves them unable to list paid apps in Android Market.

The image above is being seen by many developers locked out of the Android Market unable to offer their applications. The system is unable to setup the Merchan account. We're not sure if this is still going on, but if any Android Developer has come across this issue, let us know in the comments! Hopefully, we can get this fixed already.
