[OSM-dev] Josm throwing exceptions when predicting values

I've been away for the past week, near Malaga, Spain. While I was  
there I picked up some traces and have been putting them into OSM  
tonight. I've noticed that the daily josm snapshot now has a feature  
to allow you to select from the previous used values for a tag to  
complement the already existing feature that let you select from the  
previously used keys. Unfortunately sometimes when I use a key, josm  
is throwing an exception. Fortunately it doesn't break anything, but  
it is a little annoying. I thought it was when I used a key that  
hadn't already been used (which was relatively often in this area as  
it's fairly virgin territory) but it may simply be the fact that the  
key isn't in a predefined list that someone has compiled.

Mentioned it on IRC but noone seemed to know anything and I couldn't  
see anything on the list (though I'm afraid I didn't read all the  
messages from the past week) so I thought I'd drop a note here.


P.S. Joerg - hope you had a good time when you were in this area ;-)
