Well, "more people may be using HTTPS-Anywhere" may have something to 
do with it.

Or, it might be that some new browser release just enabled HTTP/2.0, which
in many implementations *requires* SSL and might also trip this, as noted
in a posting on the topic which I just inadvertantly posted to this same
mailing list 5 minutes ago.  :-)
