The answer was to enable the cache function. I had not noticed the  
little note on recent developments at the bottom of the pmwiki page on  
google maps api. So I created the example cache directory, set the  
cache variable in config.php and used the latest developement release  
of the api. At least for 4 tries, there are no random misses.
