[OSM-talk] Potlatch & duplicated node

Just a clue:
When the server (or network) is slow, which happens sometimes, or when the "server cannot be reached" (in which case I "retry"), I notice it creates a lot of duplicate nodes. It happens probably when deselecting (i.e. clicking where there is nothing) or moving the map so as to see if the network reacts.
When the "buffer of actions" is cleaned, I suspect the same clicks / nodes are sent many times to the server.

Objet: [OSM-talk] Potlatch & duplicated node
Whilst reviewing data I've noted recently a large number of duplicated
nodes. These occur where one way joins another.
I've managed to create a few myself, but have noted that many other users
are doing the same. In each instance the relevant ways have "created by
Potlatch" as tags.
I presume that :
(1) Either there must be a bug in Potlatch
(2) Its far too easy for a user to inadvertently create duplicated nodes.
Take for example the area
. The validator in JOSM reports 176 duplicated nodes.
Same area as shown on informationfreeway
I would stress I'm not blaming the users who created the data in that area.
I count myself as a fairly experienced OSM mapper, and as I stated earlier I
have been managing to create some duplicated nodes, and that's even after
reading and re-reading the Potlatch editing FAQ.
If its not a bug in Potlatch, then could the program be changed so that it
is much harder to duplicate nodes.
