What am I doing wrong?

I’ve deleted a non-existent road in potlatch about 4 times in the last few weeks but each Wednesday comes and goes and the road is still there. I am definitely in edit and not play mode. Is this enough info for suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Wednesdays is planet.osm dumping day isn’t it?

Try to note the way id, it’s always displayed in the left corner when you have a way selected. Then you can see if it is the same one that keeps coming back.

Very strange indeed, but a good catch.
