I wasn't able to reproduce your problem probably due to different input 
data or different splitter settings. Geofabrik seems to be down at the 
moment so no real chance to get the same input data.

If way 45338454 is only 2 km away from the tile border than it might be 
possible that it is contained in two tiles due to the splitter overlap. 
Please check if the warning message applies to the tile in which the way 
and the relation is contained completely.

Anyhow I have synchronized changes from the trunk to the locator branch. 
Please try again with these changes. At least it should reduce the 
number of such warning messages.
