I guess you guessed it well, there is just "too much" (to the extent of
what "too" means in this case) data in this relation, and the /full calls
push it to hit a well placed timeout

I did not mentionne anywhere those were errors.
I do know it is intentional, I stated it in my previous email.
What I'm discussing and exploring is the possible existence of improvement to
satisfy currently "bad requests" still usefull in the mapper's editing
