Okay, this is what we needed. notice that your pressure stays at max most of the time and that most if not all apneas happen when the pressure is maxed out. You get more leaks at the max pressure, but for now nothing that the CPAP can't handle. Those snores and flow limits are still pretty high and often.
I would raise the max limit to 14 and see what happens. If your 95% pressure follows the change to 14, you may need to go to 16. This is needed to find a max that is about 2cm higher then the 95% level. Right now they are both the same, so higher is indicated.
Your centrals are still low, so they are not being triggered by the pressure or pressure changes-good news
you might want to tighten the strap a little (1/8") to prevent leaks at the higher pressure, or you could wait on that to see if more leaks actually happen and then tighten the mask if they do.
Once you get the apneas under control you can then look at your lower pressure as you seem to move away from it right away and never go back down to it.

If the CSR events repeat, might I suggest you check with your physician.
I spotted several nights of short CSR breathing. My cardiologist told me that these could be related to cardiac events like congestive heart failure or atrial fibrillation. A simple blood test, BNP (B-type Natriuretic Peptide) can determine if you are carrying additional fluid.
In my case, following up the repetitive CSR readings saw a BNP approximately 8 times my baseline and I was given a mild diuretic. They also did an echo-cardiogram to check blood flow dynamics. You may wish to read more at http://thorax.bmj.com/content/53/6/514.full
Since there are multiple causes, I wouldn't worry too much over a single event. Repetitive events on different night are another issue. Best of luck.
