I've tried this.

My dispatcher command is:

"${EXEC_DIR}"/bin/dispatcher --osm-base --meta --db-dir="${DB_DIR}"

The query is:

encoding remark: Please enter your query and terminate it with CTRL+D.
area(3600052411) -> .myArea;
) ;
out geom;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="Overpass API">
<note>The data included in this document is from The
data is made available under ODbL.</note>
<meta osm_base="2012-12-07T16:05:03Z" areas="2012-12-07T16:05:03Z"/>

runtime error: Query failed with the exception: Zlib_Inflate: -3

Above is the error I get now. Is this a bug, or expected behaviour?

Btw, is there a stable version that we can use, instead of the latest
development version?
For instance, the version that is currently running on overpass-de ? What are
the space and time values used on that machine?

Hi all,

That has been a bug. I have just fixed it.

Best regards,
