I have not had any of my portals take me to weird places. Did you do anything very specific before trying to port that could have caused this?
The only weirdness I have had is a couple of time porting from SL continents to mathosia, the mathosia map was flipped, so Stillmoor and IPP were to the south and Shimmersand and droughtlands was to the north. Still made my destination ok though.

Just to update this thread, both issues (the cross-faction PA zone teleports and the lack of return point resetting for content like IA, WFs, CQ, etc) have been researched, documented and passed on to Engineering for proper fixes.
I have no ETA for when this might be Live, since I am not doing the work, but the ball is rolling on them.

I also get random ports when leaving a WF. It's like... it ports you out to where you actually joined the queue, as opposed to where you actually joined. I know that because I tried profoundly to recreate it. ;)
Also, if I join Conquest in Tempest Bay, or anywhere else as a matter of fact, when you port out - it sends you back to Meridian.
I was in a dungeon and could not use my teleporter from the expansion so I hit my Ember Isle ascended power and poped in at the defiant portal. Luckily I was not killed on spot and was able to run out. I have also request Ashora and went to Temptest Bay, but that was before this last Patch, the Ember Isle was yesterday, 01/03/2013.
