Just because we are on the same team, this doesn't mean we will agree 
100% of the time ;-)

I never said it wasn't a bug, yes, you should be able to rejoin a DC 
with the same name, but the standard advice on Windows seems to be 'use 
a new name'.

If you are going to re-use a DC name, then you need to demote the old DC 

The only problem is that the old DCs info will still be in deleted objects.
