At least two ip addresses are trying to exhaustively download ever tile 
from tile.osm.org. Given that there arn't any real tiles and every 
request causes one to be made, it's backed things up somewhat. These ips 
are now blocked.

I'll now have to put in some kind of rate limiting to stop this 
happening again.

have fun,
