Changed host name prevents backup
I know that this is intended behaviour for duplicity. However, I have recently installed Karmic and in doing so I changed my host name to something more imaginative. I tend to keep the same home partition when I upgrade so all my Déjà Dup setting where kept. I thought I would be able to backup but instead I get this error about the hostname mismatch. I could probably over come this by dropping to the commandline and adding the option --allow-
The steps to reproduce are easy. Backup with one computer then try and backup to the same place with a different hostname.
Just for completeness sake:
Fatal Error: Backup source host has changed.
Current hostname: rincewind
Previous hostname: sams-desktop
