I've coded a script to parse planet and return a list of all the 
excessively long ways (data is available from 
http://openstreetmap.ca/statistics/) which I am currently manually 
correcting (in this case the excessively large is defined as more then 
500 nodes). Kleptog has the coastline error checker which has been 
extremely helpful as well, and I believe has been used to fix the little 
coast errors that the checker turns up in some areas.
