The osm.xml files are largely the same (I think I'm out of date by a
couple commits, but they're the same other than that). I'm using the
default.style that ships with osm2pgsql, so maybe this is doing
something different than the main site.
The only other possibility that I'm not entirely sure of the likelihood
of is that diff parsing has messed up this relation in some way.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback; I have no immediate suggestions on a
possible reason for this behavior.
