I will do that. I need to modify my parser to emit more information about 
the bad node and way IDs. However, I am more interested in fixing the 
process by which the planet files themselves get generated to avoid the bad 
nodes in the first place. Manually fixing the missing nodes is a bandaid 
solution unless there is also a fix to prevent them from getting into the 
database in the future.
