Same here. JOSM for main editing when I've uploaded new traces.
Potlatch for minor tweaks and Yahoo tracing. Although I have taken
to then loading any area where I've Yahoo traced buildings back into
JOSM to use the Orthogonalize facility. 

I've not been able to get the Yahoo JOSM plugin working for a while,
but gave up trying as I too felt the rectification always seemed
better in Potlatch.
