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

When exporting a large(ish) map of maybe 2000mx2000m, open street map just goes to a blank page (like this: http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/map?bbox=-0.1113,51.5099,-0.0765,51.5338). Exporting a slightly smaller map seems to work ok; is there a limit on how much can be exported at once? Is there any possibility of increasing this slightly?

For example, http://overpass-api.de/api/map?bbox=-0.1113,51.5099,-0.0765,51.5338 from that list gives you exactly the desired data.
