I think one scenario which causes (or possibly caused) problems is
that you are editing a relation and download relation member ways -
this doesn't (or possibly didn't) also download information about
other relations that those ways are members of. Split a way and it
will add the newly created way id to the relation you are editing,
but won't know to add it to the other relations the pre-split way
might have been in.
I base this theory on the number of level 8 admin boundaries in
Haiti that were broken by the import of the level 10 ones (JOSM 2943
is reported on one of the relevant changesets).
