Problem with upload on edit with save Potlatch v1.0

I've just lost more than an hour's work due to this bug :'( There are two different behaviours with the same effect seen this morning:

1) When you try to save, the upload box pops up but it never finished. Eventually you see the red triangle in the bottom left. After cancelling the upload (cos nothing's happened in a very long time!) Clicking on the red triangle, and clicking retry, then clicking save again, it flashed up "deleting POIs" (I didn't delete any POIs!) and then says that it's uploaded ok. Problem is, it hasn't uploaded anything. Clearing the cache and reloading the edit page shows this. DOH!

2) When you try to save, again, the upload box appears but never finishes. Eventually you cancel and try again, and it says there's nothing to upload. Again, nothing has been uploaded.

I understand these problems are probably related to heavy server load, but we need a better way of dealing with this.

Hm. Certainly a server load issue at heart, but maybe the ways are still marked internally as "currently uploading" which is stopping them from being reuploaded a second time? I'll check.

(In [15276]) improve error handling when connection fails; closes #1864 and #1871
