Yes it is unfortunately.  I made some changes in subversion which might 
fix the problem but I haven't had a chance to test it yet.  There are a 
number of scripts under applications\utils\osm-extract in subversion 
which might be more appropriate in the meantime.

Again, I haven't had a chance to update my local schema to version 8.  
The best way to get a new schema is to run the ruby rake tool as 
described in sites\rails_port_0.5\db\README.  The schema scripts on my 
website are there for convenience to avoid having to get rails up and 
running.  I will produce a version 8 soon but probably not in the next 
couple of days.

Real work is holding me away at the moment, in a week or so I should 
have more time to catch up again.
