[aprssig] Strange Goings-on With WXSVR -- What's Happening??

I took my APRS UIview websever down for about 12 hours yesterday to do 
some major patching and updating of the OS and drivers.  When I 
restarted it about 1:00 AM Pacific time and reconnected to    
second.aprs.net:14580  ,    no WXSVR data for the NWS overlays on my US 
map at:

     <http://wa8lmf.dyndns.org:14439>  

seemed to be coming from the server.  However, a continuous flow of 
stuff apparently gated by "WXSVR-AU" which appeared to refer to places 
in Australia WAS showing up in my raw data stream.      I had made no 
changes in my filter port settings; i.e. was still using the *t/n* 
filter port switch.   

Is someone testing a future work-alike to the NWS overlays for 
Australia?       

Some hours later, the usual US feed of WXSVR data for the US shape file 
overlays resumed.  

What's going on ???
