When I reinstalled yesterday afternoon, a new profile was _not_ added, but this
morning's reinstall created yet another duplicate profile.  I'm not sure what
was different yesterday, as I was trying to recreate a different bug, so I was
not really paying close attention to the details of this one.

The defauly behaviour is to allow duplicate profile names. The
name is just a string, with no requirements on uninqueness, so
duplicates are allowed.
