[OSM-talk] Osmosis running forever with completeWays=yes?

I am trying to cut 10 areas out of the planetfile for germany. When I 
set the parameter completeWays=yes for these areas, osmosis (V0.29) 
seems to run forever. After 8,5 hours of CPU time, osmosis had created a 
number of large temporary files, one output file was at about 15% the 
expected size and all others were still empty. Without the parameter 
completeWays=yes the job is completed in less than 30 minutes.

Is completeWays=yes broken? Or does it really take this long to process? 
Is there anything I can do differently? I want the cut areas to be 
seamless, that is the reason I switched on completeWays=yes.

All hints welcome
