http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet.osm/FAQ says that ways are
trunkated at the border.  Is there a dummy node inserted at the
intersection with the bounding polygon?  Or is the first node outside the
border included?

In either case I suspect there are problems with merging two of those
extracts (with osmosis --merge) due to two ways with the same IDs.  Am I
missing something?
