You're right, it's hard to select two ways when they overlap
completely.  I find it easiest to add a new node by clicking on a +
and moving it over just a bit.  That separates out the nodes.  Then I
delete the duplicate way, and delete the new node I just created, so
the database gets nothing added to it and the duplicate way deleted.
