Has anyone been noticing an issue with paypal lately? since July, about 30% of my orders show up as pending paypal, but when i go to process them, they aren’t there. I also have customers complaining that they can’t pay with Paypal. Nothing about my paypal account or API signature has changed.

YES!  This is exactly what’s happening here. I just tested it again and the purchase I made is just sitting there as “pending” and the transaction never shows up on the PayPal side.  Magento was set to process the transaction on the Sale, but I just changed it to process on Authorization, hoping that would make a difference—but it’s still just hanging there.  It’s very embarrassing and frustrating. I was just reading something about a UTF-8 encoding issue, but I don’t know if it’s related in any way.
