It's only one of the nodes that's causing the problem. This kind of
thing does sometimes happen and the only way is for somebody with the
appropriate access to go into the database and delete it. Tom/SteveC

This happened to me a few times with really old ways that had a
history that disagreed with the current version. That doesn't seem to
be the case this time.
