[OSM-talk] Can not remove a way from a relation

I am unable to remove way http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/4596756

from the relation http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/21359

I am thus also unable to delete way 4596756 which is overlapping
another way also beeing part of the relation.

I am using JOSM and get en error when I try to upload the relation
after having taken way out of the relation.
I can see that this relation has more than thousand ways, and I think
this could be the problem.

I have seen in other threads that large relations should be broken up
and nested, but how can this be done
when I am simply unable to remove ways from the relation.

I would think that it might be natural to break the relation (which is
highway E20 from UK to somwhere in the Baltics)
could pe seperated into sub relations for each country that is passes.

Hope to get some advice on how to fix this.
