This wasn't a giant burst of activity by Tenable.  What actually
happened was that we added an IPv6 address to the server on May 6 and
the Nessus DRM system went berserk, thinking it was now a different
machine and the installation code was unauthorized.  The updater
refused to function and we finally had to re-register the feed from
scratch.  Now it is happy and working again until the next time we
make a small configuration change to the server.

I'm not trying to criticize Tenable or Nessus here, but the incident
does serve as a nice reminder of the sort of proprietary software
frustrations that Nmap users never need to deal with.
