sorry, for cut'n'paste from the mailing list archives, but I was not
subscribed when the topic was started:

Hard to solve without knowing what the user did... but good to know that
problem is there.

Is user "hdus" hanging around?

Some days ago I reported a similar problem to the talk-de list. It is about the ways


They all have nodes with the same ID one after the other. All the ways are created or last modified with Merkaartor.

It would be useful to check that two successive nodes don't have the same ID before a way is submitted to the DB.
