The tool that tiles at home uses to "automatically" detect changes is here:

http://svn.openstreetmap.org/utils/tilesAtHome/tools/nodewatch/

There are many problems in addition to the once-per-2-days restriction in that 
script - example, if more than 200 changes get uploaded at once to OSM, then 
the nodes.RSS feed won't show them. Similarly, if you create a segment or a 
way or label a road, it won't cause a re-render because the OSM server 
doesn't tell anyone it happened.


The methods for manually requesting a render are here:
