[OSM-Talk-ZA] Street names repeated many times in the Name Field.

Hmm, I'm sure I named that street in the first place.  I think I used
JOSM.  When I get time, I guess I can look at the history - at work
right now.

Also, I've recently started using Vespucci, and sometimes it fails to
upload data, but on repeated tries, it works.  I wonder whether it's
messing something up when it fails?

Regards,

David
