It took me a while to work out why there were so many unordered ways in
areas I had been working.
I now keep the "display segment order numbers" permanently checked so that I
can see these misordered ways. But even so I still find myself forgetting
to check their order before uploading to the server.
I have to say both the maplint layer at infomationfreeway.org, and the JOSM
maplint plugin are very useful for identifying them.
