#1004 closed enhancement (wontfix)

'/' key should work if way selected, not just node

Editing overlapping ways is quite awkward; to get the selection to work reliably, it seems you have to click an odd or even number of times before pressing '/', depending on whether the current way you have selected ends in that point or not.

If you don't do this, and press '/' while in "extend way" mode, things seem to get unpredictably buggy. You stay in "extend way" mode, but it's unclear to me what way you're extending.

A good start on this would be to have '/' automatically leave "extend way" mode. Then single clicking the node again before pressing '/' should suffice. It'd be even nicer if just pressing '/' would cycle through the ways.

Yep - the '/' key needs a complete rewrite, it was only ever put in as a simplest-thing-possible hack. Really it shouldn't be necessary to select the node, you should just be able to select the way. As an interim measure I'll certainly make it leave 'extend way' mode.

Summary: buggy '/'-key (selecting overlapping ways)'/' key should work if way selected, not just node

Will leave 'extend way' as of 0.10c. Summary changed to reflect further enhancement.
