Well maybe you should try to work with the planet dumps. The server is 
limiting request (because of performance reasons) to a limited time and size.
You can use 
to download and extract a smaller area out of planet.osm.
If you have a debian system and don't want to hazzle arround with installing 
it by hand you can also use the current gpsdrive-debian-svn package to 
install this.
For Karlsruhe you would have to add a bounding Box to 
SVN: http://svn.openstreetmap.org/utils/perl/Geo/Filter/Area.pm
or locally for testing:
Or jou just send me a bounding Box and I'll add it to the File.
Format of the Bounding Box:
    #                     min    |    max  
    #               [  lat , lon ,  lat, lon ]
