[Talk-us] Changeset 5393406

Theoretically, the changeset allows you to revert an erroneous bulk upload.
But it would be nice if JOSM (or Merkaartor) gave a warning before blindly
sending large changesets.

However, it turned out that this did come from bulk_upload.py - which is
even more bothersome as I know I was pointing it explicitly at our server. I
need to look at the code there.
