Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I've downloaded data, and I'm trying to add new Street Centerlines. For some reason, when I create arc segments and bezier curves, the get broken into multiple straight segments.

Is that normal? If so, why does it work that way?

The OpenStreetMap data model does not support bezier curves (or circles and arcs for that matter), hence the need to break them into straight line segments.
