Thank you, that helps a lot.

I've also found way #4732211 that shows no history information at all. 
Altogether, about 250 ways of 140 million ways and probably also a small 
fraction of all nodes are affected, without any obvious pattern. The ways show 
the same behaviour on a independent database instance. I expect that it would 
take several days to determine the cause. I'll publish any results here and on

Best regards,
