[OSM-talk] Error while uploading with JOSM

Regarding the timeout:
JOSM often stops working properly when I hit the cancel button (while uploading coordinates or downloading WMS images), which is clearly a bug.
As long as that bug is not fixed, having a higher timeout limit is not a very good idea IMHO. You are forced to wait until the time out dialog shows if you want to keep on working without problems.
That being said, is the timeout limit customizable yet? :-P

I confirm what Rob said, it actually resumed from where it left. But
it's also true it took many tries before I was able to upload the
entire dataset. I suspect this problem is more likely with large
datasets, and it may just be something could be tweaked in JOSM to
extend the connection timeout limit.
