[OSM-dev] Difficulty fetching data from API in own app, but not browser

Thanks for that.

As it happens the error was the same as the github issue below; it was due to aan NPE caused by getTags() returning null.

What threw me a bit was that the code was catching the NPE and throwing it as an XML parser exception.

Next time: make sure I print the full stack trace... ;-)

Similar error messages have been reported in the osmapi repo before.
Maybe you want to review them in more detail, like the following one:

After all, the parsing error might turn out to be a completely different
error in your own code rather than some issue in the osmapi library.
