In the download dialog, you have to enable "Resolve all relations".
When downloading from the API by bounding box (e.g. viewport), the relations
which cross the viewport are downloaded but not all of their children.
To avoid inconsistencies, at the end of the download, all relations of which
not all children have been downloaded are removed.
When enabling "Resolve all relations", rather than removing the relation,
all missing children are downloaded and thus you are sure the relation is
The downside of this (and the reason it is not enabled by default; it is
remembered, though) is that if the viewport fortuously cross a very large
relation (like a border or a large cycleway, for instance), every features
would be downloaded, which would mean a large, slow, unecessary download.
This is hinted at
at the end of the paragraph.
