While editing north-western Poland yesterday (April 10) afternoon,
something strange happened. It might be related to the DB
rollback. I'm not sure when I started my editing. After having
finished a few hours of editing in JOSM and uploading my last
changes, I also saved the JOSM data layer to file (15:42 GMT).
Then when I started to generate tiles (I run tiles at home in xy
mode, based on coordinates in the .osm file saved from JOSM), I
discovered that parts of my roads were missing. This area is just
east of the city Stettin/Szczecin in Poland,
When I opened this area in JOSM (new download, not my old data),
it looks like a mess. Not only were some of my roads missing.
But parts of footpaths and a cemetary from England had been added!
I didn't change anything in this mess. I believe it is still
there, and in this morning's planet.osm.
