Hi Ian

Thanks for that.  I deleted the old one as it had intersecting nodes that defied any effort to remove.  Also decided to be rather more precise with the Bing tracing.

So patience is the key.  Um?  Not my strong point but will give it a shot. 

Cheers

Empty relations are very easy to lose track of because they have no location information left in them.  Personally I think there should be a warning as you are removing the last object from a relation, because it isn't something you really want to do.
