I obviously cannot comment on the discussion your mother had but if you look @ Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100) you'll see it just specifies a need to be outside of Australia.
Sometimes what can come out of discussions will depend on the participants and what questions are actually asked.

I spoke to the Australian Embassy a few days ago and I was told that yes, my hubby can go to Australia on a Tourist visa, and if the Spousal visa is accepted while we're in Australia, we can pick it up from (for eg) from an Australian Embassy in New Zealand. So we're going to apply. Does anyone know how much funds one should have for the Tourist visa to be accepted? (Note: In the application I will be stating that a Family member will be supporting us with accommodation).

Seeing as he is going with you and you'll have family support, I'd not think they'll be too concerned with funds and you can even use a credit card account balance as finds if need be and so long as you can show something equivalent to a few hundred A$/week for say a nominal three months or six months you ought to be OK.

We applied for a tourist visa exactly 2 weeks ago. We were told that some people who go on a tourist visa while having applied for a spouse visa sometimes get the spouse visa 1 week after being granted the tourist visa! They told us that they'd most likely give us 3 months stay not 6 months. So we are now waiting The average processing time for a tourist visa in Lebanon is 2 weeks, so I hope sometime this week we get an answer. My hubby has a feeling they'll delay the tourist visa to give us the spouse visa... I sure hope so! What do you guys think?

As per my post #7 , I reckon it'd be great if you were to get the spouse visa and even once he gets the tourist visa, I'd be checking with the CO to see if there is any latest news before getting too far ahead with leaving plans.

By work on the case, do you mean just keep contacting Immi?
Nothing to stop you still sending emails I suppose.
