Default No WiFi location on [ROM][4.4.2][GSM] Official CM11 (Nightlies)

On the latest nightlies my XT910 (umts_spyder) is not using WiFi location.
GPS and Cell location are working. I tracked my location
history and find out that the issue occured with an update
at the end of march. Unfortunately i can't say, which nightly
i installed before and after it was not working. I only can say,
that i was running a cm11 nightly before 03/26 and the wifi location
worked. With an update available at 03/26 no wifi location was used
anymore. In this time i updated the nightlies once a week (may be two)
using cm-updater ota.

I also tried a clean install of the 2014-04-17 nightly on a newly
created SS rom slot 1 --> didn't work.

I read that someone also described this issue in the dev-thread but there
was no real feedback. Does anyone know, if this issue is already known to the
devs and if thy are working on it?

Seems that nobody has an idea... but I still have this issue and tried alot.
(New nightlies in clean slots; other cm-based roms, various switching of
possible options...)

Now the interesting part:

One try was to flash an old nightly, For this nightly I know that the wifi-location
worked with it. But surprisingly after flashing it didn't work ... so I think, that issue
isn't related only to changes in nightlies.

Yesterday proofed it. I restored an SS-Backup from the end of February. And for
a short time after the boot my location was correct and as precise as it was before.
Around half an hour later the location was unprecise again and wifi wasn't used
anymore. The only thing happened in the meantime, was the pushing of updates.
So I'm quite sure, that a silently pushed update of a google package or service
is causing it.

I also checked my location history again and compared it to my backups. During this,
I noticed, that I wasn't flashing any update the time, when the wifi-location mode or "fused
location provider" stopped working correctly... for me it was around lunchtime on March 26...

I have the same problem (HTC One max KiteKat 4.4.2)
The problem is a version of Google Service Play.
- 4.2.x working
- 4.3.x NOT working

Thanks for that. Now I know it's probably not device-spezific.

Also tried with a clean install of M6 snapshot... issue persists
