There was a change to the object filter and it broke earlier filters.  That was changed later so that the "os" filter did it the new way, and the "o" filter retained the earlier functionality, so at that point (maybe a month back?) the "o" filter started working again for everyone.

I don't know of there were additional changes or why it rearranges things, but I've seen that as well.  I suspect the "o" filter may just reformat and pass it on to the "os" filter, but I can't say for sure.

Your best bet would be to ask Pete.  He may send you to the guy who wrote the filter code, or perhaps the filter code is now inside javAPRSSrvr...  Don't recall.
