I am having massive backfill problems with IB, too. I guess it's an IB problem, because the data stops at around 8:14 am for the historical data.
The ability to receive realtime data doesn't seem to be affected, but you can't backfill today's data so far.

I had the same problem this morning in the early hours trading the EUR-Future 6E. I wasnt able to chart any volume or tick chart, only minute charts were working.

The problem seems to be in my case the connection to the Asian Server in the first hours. After 8 AM European Time and the automatic switch from IB to the swiss server the problem didnt occur any more.

Yes, I have not been able to backfill any Globex futures with Monday's data.
It seems that this is lost :( .
