Anybody knows what's the problem with the map here:


At some of the zoom scales I see a red hatched rectangle covering a large area. Looks like something went wrong with rendering...

There was briefly some satirical vandalism. Someone tagged the whole of the United States as a military area. It was quickly spotted and fixed, but there are a few affected tiles still hanging around. They'll be back to normal soon.

It looks like someone might have been uploading a changeset when the tiles were rendered witch caused a military area to spill over the entire world just as the tiles were rendered. This will disapear when the tiles are rerendered.
