Summary: xml/json output format not working for specific searchxml/json output format not working for large polygons with polygon=1

There is a known problem with the 'polygon' option where it allocates too much memory on the server for large polygons.

Try one of the newer polygon_(geojson|kml|svg|text) options instead (see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim#Parameters). They are faster, work well with large polygons and are also able to handle multipolygons.

The polygon parameter is now deprecated and won't be fixed.
