Interesting. The logical conclusion is that it is related to the
changes that I made last week - it looks like the increase in InnoDB
buffer space to 2Gb was done immediately after the planet dump last
week. That does seem to have helped the API though, so it is swings

I thought Sebastian had stopped it now anyway?

They're pretty basic queries, so I doubt it.
Osmosis seems to fare rather better though, as it managed to dump the
database in about 3.5 hours this evening. It also does rather more
complicated queries, but it does use the history tables (which are
all MyISAM) rather than the live tables (which are mostly InnoDB).
