I just it a rather frustrating scenario. I was uploading a large set
of data into the Thunder Bay area. My network connection died in the
middle. (and didn't notice for a day) No big deal, I just restarted
the upload as it had been saving changes in the new JOSM.
However, what I didn't realize is magellan
<http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/magellan> had gone in and started
deleting any orphaned nodes from the now closed first change set. So I
have this big batch that I can't finish the upload as magellan has
deleted all required nodes.
I've asked magellan if they could refrain from deleting objects in that
area so I can fix the batch... just wanted people to be aware if there
deleting in an area. I'm guessing magellan saw the 50,000 orphaned or
duplicate nodes and did a clean up while my batches were still
processing. Problem is if your uploading and it's going to take
multiple change sets the first set contains all the new nodes. (thus
creating duplicates and orphans) The second or third changeset has the
ways, and relations.
