This is a non issue, but interesting.

I ran bzip2recover on it and every two bz2 blocks are just ~100bytes..
I'm guessing this is an artifact  from parallel bzip2, but that it
could be so extreme was new to me.

Size in bytes for bz2 blocks in full planet history file:
36972 rec00614fullplanet.bz2
152  rec00615fullplanet.bz2

This is from the ordinary planet dump:
107188  rec00025plane.bz2
32877  rec00026planet.bz2
