Probing starts too high?

Hi. I have a bewildering problem.
Litterally 2 hours ago, i pressed print, the machine did its autocalibration and printed just fine.
I went to print the same exact thing a second time, but now the probing starts at around z = 26 as displayed in the duet portal….. WHY? I changed nothing. I just pressed print again. I've never had this issue before. I've tried to reset the printer using the HARD STOP button on the portal, but no dice... it doesn't appear like the steppers are skipping steps. I am running a delta....
config.g shows approximately the correct bed height, and if i home, then go down to z=0 that is correct... it just starts probing too high. (resulting in a failed autocal).

Firmware Electronics: Duet WiFi 1.0

But again, i made zero changes since two hours ago when it was printing great.
; Auto calibration routine for delta printers ; Before running this, you should have set up your zprobe Z offset to suit your build, in the G31 command in config.g.

The only reason I can think of why it would start probing much too high even though it has the Z height about right is if the trigger height in the G31 command has got set too high. Run M558 to check what type of Z probe you have configured, then run G31 T#, where # is the Z probe type, to see what trigger height is set.

Z Probe type 1, invert no, dive height 5.0mm, probe speed 120mm/min, travel speed 6000mm/min, recovery time 0.00 sec, used for axes:
9:17:41 PMG31 T1
Threshold 500, trigger height 21.82, offsets X0.0 Y0.0
So. I guess that solves that mystery.. I just checked my config.g file and sure enough 21.82 was set there instead of 1.82.. I didnt change it in between prints though (but maybe several prints before that)….. strange. Barring end-user incompetence, what could it be?!
