It seems Matt is right. - About half a year ago, someone claimed that 
the planet file was meanwhile done in a transaction and I checked it at 
the time and found the same inconsistencies as always, but in the 
current planet the highest defined node id is 739092179 and the highest 
referenced node id only 739091794 so at least it does not exhibit the 
same problem any more.
