Dear Nick

I would strongly advise to review and revise you conversion scripts.

The move to select and delete these duplicated ways with JOSM seems a bit risky. However for the already uploaded data you possibly don't have much choices. Give it a go by using the following in JOSM's find function.

tags:1 and closed and "sby:bldgtype"=*

I have also noted that your import has generated quite some duplicate ways (and thus ton of  nodes). JOSM's validator is your friend - check the data with it and remove automatically the dupes - better do it twice.

Best regars
