Sorry guys, not sure I'm following here.

I understand what you mean by shape files, but I haven't changed anything on
the server at all in the 3 months I've had it up and running. The only thing
that has changed is the database, because I import daily change sets into
the gis database and even that is on a completely different physical
machine. Why should my tiles be affected, but osm.org's not?

Cheers for the replies so far! Hopefully I'll catch on soon.
