I tried to follow the instructions on 

When the 0.2 API was actice it worked, but now it looks like i 
can't get any data for any area with the map?bbox= method.

With the 0.3 API on the Server active I try this request:
- SNIP -----------------------------------------------------------
wget 'http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.3/map?bbox=41.1111,10.1111,42.1112,11.1112'
22:07:34 FEHLER 500: Internal Server Error.
- SNIP -----------------------------------------------------------

Trying another request method works:
- SNIP -----------------------------------------------------------
wget -O - 'http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.3/segment/113991' | gzip -dc
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<osm version="0.3" generator="OpenStreetMap server">
  <segment id="113991" from="155337" to="155328">
    <tag k="name" v="Camden Road"/>
- SNIP -----------------------------------------------------------

But I think to get all Street Data for an area the best method 
seems to be map?bbox=. So any hint will be greatly appreciated.
