      Ok, that 'splains it. The issue happens when you're centered on a
      station that has embedded spaces. This causes an invalid automatic
      filter to be generated, but you don't notice that because the APRS-IS
      server will continue to use your pre-centered filter. BUT, since you're
      connected to firenet.us AND that server restarts every morning about
      2:00am eastern time, when APRSISCE/32 reconnects after that restart the
      server has no filter and the automatic one is invalid, resulting in no
      APRS-IS packets coming in because there's no filter at the server.

      So, I need to detect the spaced-out centered station and replace the
      first embedded space with an *. Watch for a development release with
      notes to this effect and then give it another test.

      In the meantime, don't center any windows on a station with embedded
      spaces in the name and you'll survive the daily firenet.us server
      restart with filter intact.

      PS. Aren't trace logs wonderful?

Apparently the network was quiet so the connection was restarted. However, it appears that changed the filter string passed to the server which was something it didn't like and therefore nothing was sent from the server to me. I had to close and reopen the multitrack window to fix the filter.
