>From what I have read from the replies, the missing nodes are a combination 
of errors in the database which will appear in each day's dataset and 
missing nodes due to the way the way the daily diffs are generated 
currently. The latter nodes will change day to day as each diff is 

Is there some way to fix the nodes that are actual database errors? We could 
generate a definate list of them by using the two lists I posted (the nodes 
that appear in both lists).
