I've committed a further bugfix to stop these bogus POIs appearing,  
which should be effective as of the next deployment. Not 100%  
convinced that this is necessarily the issue we're seeing here, but I  
guess we'll see.

Brett - thanks for the continued tests, much appreciated.

What's the situation with transactions on the OSM db? If I were to  
put the whole of the putway call (i.e. write nodes and ways for a  
saved way) into a transaction, would that have any effect at all  
given our db setup?

I guess the other thing we could work on is expanding the "social  
mapping" side of the site, so that you could be alerted when a new  
mapper arrives in your area, and gently help them into the ways of  
OSMing. This probably requires us to finally turn anonymous edits off.
