Canon LP-E6 batts for 5DII in short supply?

I just bought a 5DII and went looking for a couple of extra batteries. It seems that right now they are in VERY short supply. BH, Adorama, Abes, & the usual retupable places I've dealt with are all back ordered; the rest (including Canon) are either $100+ or places with poor reseller ratings.

Does anyone have any idea why they are in such short supply right now? Anyone know of any news that would indicate what's going on and when they might be available again? At the moment I intend to just wait, but how long before I try some non-OEMs?.
