Default [Q] Location Services Error

Sometime in the last week or two, my location services have completely gone away. On Maps, I get "waiting for location" and then "Your current location is temporarily unavailable." When I go into GPS Status, there are no satellites seen. Both satellites and Google location services are activated.

When I do a complete wipe, functionality comes back. Immediately after reinstalling my apps (without restoring data), functionality is still there, but after a short time the problem resurfaces. I haven't determined if it is an app or if the problem occurs after a service starts.

The only things that occurred prior to the problem resurfacing were the passage of time, opening several apps that require root - including SetCPU, SD Maid, AdFree, BatteryCalibration, and Titanium, and the receipt of 2 phone calls.

Is there any way, short of freezing/uninstalling apps and services one at a time, that I can figure out what's doing this?

It happens with both CM7 and CM9 nightlies.

Primary: Moto X GSM Developer Edition | Unlocked with Xposed
Secondary: HTC One - AT&T | ROM: ARHD 71.1 | S-Off
Tablet: Asus Transformer Infinity TF700 | ROM: CM 10.2
