I used to like working with OSM, but after my user was blocked I don't. 
Hopefully it will come back. So for now I will leave the import to you 
guys.

I don't know if your example with the 50 000 nodes was mine, but just in 
case; you of all should know that it failed because my user was blocked by 
you. The nodes are always transfered first and the ways and relations etc 
at the end. So a break like that will always make it fail. And by the way, 
it was no problem reverting it.
