I suspect this was caused by a data inconsistency in the DB where the
relation was referencing a way that did not exist. This could be why
the API refused to accept the upload from JOSM (It would certainly
helpful if the API was a little bit more verbose with its error
I don't know how Potlatch deals with that through its private API.
