The planet files do not have referential integrity. Because the ways are 
dumped long after the nodes, if someone creates a new way plus new nodes 
some time during the planet dump creation, the new way will be in the 
dump but the new nodes will not.

You can most likely fix that issue by taking the daily diff from the day 
the planet file was created and applying it to the planet file with 
Osmosis, and then import the resulting, amended planet file.
