Duplicate User Entries Won't Delete From Directory Catalog

A customer has setup a new R5 Directory Catalog and notices that two users with
the same name is listed even though they have selected the option to delete
duplicate entries in the Directory Catalog database.
This is a common problem if you copy and paste person documents from the source
Domino Directory that the Directory Catalog is agregating from. Remember that
each document has it's own Note ID and if you delete one entry that previously
existed in the Directory Catalog and then past and entry into the source, the
next time the Aggregator runs, you will end up to 2 unique documents each with
the same common name. The only workaround to this are the following:

1.) Delete the user and let the Agreggator rebuild during the next cycle

2.) Build a new Directory Catalog from the source directories
