The osmosis package that comes with ubuntu is rather out of date. The latest 
version as far as I know is 0.40.1 if you download that from source maybe 
it'll fix some of your problems. The download from source will work since 
all the dependencies will have already been installed with the ubuntu 
version of osmosis. You can even have both versions if you need that for 
some reason.
