It might be helpful to know what the error is.  The console output of
JOSM might be interesting, too.

You get the error after a fresh download of the relation?  Such a huge
relation has a large potential for conflicting edits because many
people might want to edit it at the same time.  However, I can't
really think of why uploading a new version of a relation could create
a conflict for the API.

Maybe JOSM runs into a timeout with a large object like this when the
server is under load.  Again, what is the error?
