PCB Issue - Pads on top of each other

I have a strange issue where I have inadvertently placed several pads (sparkfun pin header / luxeon-pad) on top of each other.

 

Now I have no way to separate them.  I can't for the life of me figure out how to select only a single one.

 

When I click on the top one, it immediately starts creating a new trace.  If I click and drag around them to select, it selects all of them.

 

What can I do, short of deleting them and starting over?

Well, my (very painful) woraround is to right-click on the top pad and select Rotate 90.  This makes the top and bottom stick up just enough that I can click and grag a corner to select it and move it out of the way.  Rinse, repeat.   Surely there's a better way??
