I'm trying the overpass API from JOSM and keep getting timeouts. 
According to the docs, the bounding box for the Overpass query would be 
set automatically when selecting an area in the map in the download 
screen, but I do not see that in the resulting query that gets logged.

Trying the example query from the wiki give me this error (afer a few 
2016-12-26 16:02:59.165 SEVERE: IO Exception - <html>Failed to upload 
data to or download data 
to a problem with transferring data.<br>Details (untranslated): Read 
timed out</html>

I do not see a bounding box in there.

If I download without a query there is a proper bbox in the API GET.

Is there something I should do to get the query to take the bbox?
