I've noticed that some mashup services mysteriously break when Google
decides to give them/you a captcha. This could be happening to you. You
could try to solve a google captcha by issuing some queries and/or
using Google maps first, to see if this makes any difference. Usually
once you have the cookies for a session that solves a captcha, Google
does not make you solve another.
You could also install an addon to observe the requests your browser
uses in both non-Tor and Tor accesses of this gadget to see if the
requests appear different for some reason. That may help diagnose the
