ok! I don't use osmcut since I wasn't aware it existed, but I use my
own tool which splits on OSM slippymap tile boundaries that makes my
tiles smaller and hence I see more tiles per way. I have no real
numbers though.. :-)
Are you going to develop osmcut more?

It was important for me for me though.. ;-)
The fastest solution to your problem is either to fix the app that
uses your data so that it can read nodes interleaved with the ways.
This would make it possible to
1. read way
2. fetch nodes
3. write nodes
4. write way
5. goto 1.
Or to do what Frederik says.do a separate dump of nodes and ways and
then join them, I do this and it's trivial.
