The OSM Inspector tells me that I accidentally created a way containing a single node - see Obviously I would like to delete the way with its single node, so I accepted the OSM Inspector's offer to edit it in Potlatch 2 (the editor that I normally use). I zoomed in as far as Potlatch would allow, and in the middle of the image there was a way that is not the one found by the Inspector, and that I do not want to delete. There is no sign of the offending node or way. Can anyone help me to find them?

That node is visible in JOSM.

Maybe a Potlatch bug because I can't see it either in P1 nor P2. Have you check on trac is a ticket already existed about this ?

Thanks for that observation. I have deleted the offending node and way using JOSM (but I still prefer Potlatch!). I tried some experiments creating single-node ways in Potlatch, and it does sometimes seem to get a bit confused. There is a trac ticket (4378) relating to single-node ways in Potlatch, so I think I should wait before logging an issue of my own. Someone is clearly investigating that part of Potlatch.

You can confirm that the probem is still there ;)
