Hmm...  It looks like this is happening again, only in a different
way:  now a few streets I edited in potlatch last night show up fine
in both potlatch and josm, but have sections missing on the
newly-rendered Mapnik map.  Have a look at way 4265058 located in the
approximate bounding box defined by:

41.7748, -87.9966
41.7579, -87.9879

The area in question is also visible at:

In the above view there are also a few streets to the west of that
section that are missing pieces.
