connections are very poor and unreliable, by an large, and that during an
upload errors or failed connections in an upload can prompt a double upload

I was having this issue myself even with a fast and reliable connection (I
mean, even fast and reliable is NOTHING compared to what I had in Holland,
I'm really speaking about "relatively fast").

In the upload dialog I always have to choose the advanced properties to
upload in batches of 10.  This seems to have fixed this for me.  I spent
lots of time deleted duplicates, but I am sure I missed some.

For double tags on Mosques, I just add that I tag the node and an area, the
building, so it's double, yes, but, without an example I'm not sure if this
is what you are referring to.
