Well, even without the -b/CW* in my filter string, I am still getting 
position reports from everywhere!

My current filter is "filter t/n/ilx* t/mkx* b/K9KRW*/KB9YQX-1"

After all this time with the filter port, and not having this issue 
until today, I just don't get why my string now causes this.. I got the 
weather related messages, I didn't get the CW stations and I always saw 
my friend in California wether he was driving around or just sitting at 
home, :-) plus I used the f /k9krw*/50 to see the APRS activities around 
him when he was driving up to Oregon.. Sometimes he is K9KRW-14, and 
sometimes he is K9KRW-9, that's why the asterisk obviously..

Oh well, I know there was a change in how the software is now case 
sensitive, and if that is not the reason I see all this activity now, I 
guess I will have to revisit the filter.txt files and play around with 
them. Again, until today, I've not seen this situation before.. 

Sorry I don't seem to be able to better explain the differences, I'll 
just have to live with it and learn how to regain what I was happy with. :-)
