test case:

  1. Create a way/click on an existing way.
  2. Press the "Create parallel way (P)" button in the toolbox several times.
  3. Click anywhere on the map.
  4. There will now be a large amount of ways with no nodes (which you will not see).
  5. Press the Save button, and the error dialog box ("Precondition failed: Cannot create way: data is invalid") will pop up.

I (first created a new two-node way) clicked 5 times on it and had 5 ways without any node (visible in the data).
