I have another bug (or feature) on adding nodes with shift-click to an 
existing way with Potlatch: The nodes and segments are added and the way 
is modified just fine, but in some cases it doesn't remove the original 
segment (not part of the way anymore) that was there before adding the 
new nodes. I added a couple of bridges to existing ways using the aerial 
imagery with Potlatch when I noticed this after downloading the data 
into JOSM (and zooming in). On the other hand when adding more nodes to 
better follow a curve in the road with Potlatch, no extra segments were 
left behind.
