It's not expressly forbidden to have a way comprising 865234  
occurrences of the same node in succession, though I agree it's not  
desirable, so strictly it's not a bug.

Potlatch does already trap most such occurrences (see http:// 
way.as#L691) but if you can provide steps to reproduce that would be  
helpful - on a trac ticket, please, so I can keep track of it, and  
ideally with way ids as I've just spent two minutes clicking around  
and can't actually find which ways you're talking about. ;)
