Default Air Bubbles in my Secondary!

So, I brewed a nice vanilla porter about two weeks ago. After 8 days I racked from the primary to the secondary, but somehow in the process the suction died and shot a bunch of air up through the tube and back into the primary.
I started the siphon again and hoped that I didn't kill the beer by injecting a bunch of air into the primary. After one week in the secondary, it was looking as though everything was going along fine, but today a few air bubbles appeared on top of the beer in the secondary. It looks somewhat similar to the post here a week ago (Mold? Infection? post) without the white film.
Is this something to worry about or is it just the air escaping? I'll try to get a photo up tonight. Thanks!

Don't worry about it, gas has to escape in secondary too

You should do what everyone must do in this situation. Find your nearest fellow homebrewer and give him your beer to test/dispose of.

I shoot bubbles all over the place when I rack to the secondary almost everytime. I hate racking to the secondary. I think I might stop.
