ARIN has changed the Whois query behavior on port 43. A query for an IP
address in the ARIN region will return only that assignment/allocation
within the ARIN region, and will no longer included ARIN's parent record 
(the /8).

Both the Whois web interface and Whois-RWS behavior were not affected by 
this configuration change.
