Wmfrog downloads the raw observations and attempts to decode them.  It
only updates LBWN if it does so succesfully.  Wmweather, on the other
hand, downloads the already decoded observations, which are also
available.  My guess is that wmfrog's decoder can't parse the raw
observations under certain circumstances.  I'll do some debugging and
see if I can reproduce the problem.
