I used JOSM 12712 for some edits and then I tried to save them. JOSM didn't complain, but it was stuck in an infinite loop of "I'm currently uploading the changes". Since it wasn't completed after like 5 minutes and it was late I decided to let the computer run and close JOSM the next morning.

However, the upload was still running the next morning. When I looked into my changeset list, I noticed that JOSM created the changeset (http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/52778088) but there were no changes in them. I abborted the upload (it was like 8+ hours since I started the upload). I tried to play around with the settings, reload the map data and tried to push it to the same changeset. It didn't work again. Since I tried to push it to the same changeset all the time (which was maybe closed by the server in the mean time?) I tried to upload the changes to a new changeset (http://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/52779207). I had the same problem again. The changeset was created, but there were no changes in them.

The solution to this was to save the changes and restart JOSM. I imported the changeset data and pushed it to the server. This time it worked.

The question: Now there are two empty changesets which aren't even visible from the profile page which don't serve any purpose. Is it possible to delete them?

No, it isn't possible to delete those two empty changesets. Just don't worry about them.
