Annoying cat is annoying

So we have a cat. He came with the house, and probably not the cat we would have picked for ourselves, but now he's ours and we love him. However he's recently added a new behavioral problem to a list of behavioral problems that isn't as short as all that: From 3 in the morning onwards he wanders the house and meows constantly.

Often he starts out just behind the cat flap, meowing to be let in (depsite having a perfectly good flap. He's not a very smart cat.) Then he'll patrol up and down the house, meowing all the way. Sometimes he seems to be leading us into one particular spot in the living room, and petting him may make him settle there for a bit, though if we return to bed he's back to meowing. Eventually he'll either go to the door and ask to be let out, or we'll just throw him out.
Then half an hour later he'll do the same thing. And again and again... meow meow meow.
I am of course the designated person to get up when the cat meows.
So, my possibly quite futile cat psychology questions are:
What on earth is my cat doing?
How can I make him stop it?
