[OSM-talk] Maximum segment length?

I've noticed a strange rendering issue with the highway I took (and 
mapped) on a recent trip.  Some tiles would simply refuse to render.  I 
finally realized that the problem was the segment was too long and the 
tiles in the middle weren't rendering.  By simply adding nodes I solved 
the problem.  But, this causes me to ask the question... how long can a 
segment be?  Around here, highways can go on in a straight line for 
many, many kilometers.  (One problem stretch was about 50km.)
