[aprssig] Tiger map problems (again)

Hi folks,

I've had this problem before, but the techniques to solve it aren't working this time...  

Tiger maps have disappeared.  I'm running xastir, and all I get is the blank background.  Other maps (e.g. topo) do seem to load, but I like to use the Tiger ones.

In the past, I could re-index the maps, add new ones, and go back to the Map Chooser to re-designate Tigermaps.geo as the Automap.  This time, re-indexing the maps causes Tiger to disappear from the Map Chooser, leaving two Topo maps, three radar maps, and the four Terraserver maps.  If I then tell xastir to add new maps, tiger shows up, and I go back into the map chooser and re-designate it as the Automap, with fill and USGS DRG set to Auto.  When I hit Apply, the main screen shows "Loading Online/tigermap.geo", but I never see a map appear.

The internet connection is fine.  Any hint on what to do next?
