I'm continuing to look into this one. It may well be connected with  
the repeatedly mentioned bug whereby a "whichways" call (i.e. get  
POIs) can take place halfway through a "putway" call (i.e. save way)  
- in other words, when the nodes have been written but not the way,  
causing whichways to identify them as POIs. The user then sees these  
misleading POI nodes and tries to delete them. I have tried to squash  
this bug but haven't managed yet.

Anyone else is very welcome to look over the Potlatch source, it  
doesn't just have to be me... :)
