Hi Sam,

I've been looking into this, and it seems that clouds.* was a new
subdomain which went live last night. Cloud-init was already prepared
to support this, but the new subdomain didn't support wildcard (where
wildcard is your declared region name).

This has now been resolved.  Please let me know if you see any further
issues with this.
