[Merkaartor] Uploading data from bulk .shp conversion

It's due to Merkaartor assuming an OSM is an extract of the database, and
not handling the case of OSM being a transport format "JOSM-style", i.e.
with negative id's. Could you please send me the OSM? I'll see that

OTOH, Merkaartor allows to import SHP files directly, too. In this instance,
the SHP objects are considered as GPX trackpoints, i.e. editable but not
uploadable without a manual "commit".
To upload an object, you will have to select it and "Feature - Commit to
dirty layer" it first.
