I should not try an add if the object is already there.
I think the reason is that the search for the existing object doesn't
search in all partitions.

And/or there's something wrong in the vampire provision code.
Maybe we should also check the instanceType flags to see if
the object relongs to the current partition.

We also need to handle the case where a new subdomain is added to the
forest and the head object of the partition comes within the replication
of the domain nc.

I fear our concept of storing partitions in different ldbs is wrong...
