due to a bug in the software, nodes that have the same id modulus 2^64, have been confused by the software.

You can reproduce the bug (on a worldwide instance) with a request like[out:json];(node(1);node(4294967297););out;

It should show two different nodes. If you see only one of the two nodes or no node at all, you are likely affected by the bug.

There is a fix available in the minor_issues branch. Unfortunately, you need to reload the database afterwards, because the bug has made various nodes disappear. The clone endpoint, available at

has already been fixed and can be used to get over the bug after the software update.

I'm sorry for the inconveniences. A thank you to mmd and tyrasd who have reported the bug.

Best regards,
