I agree with Richard's assessment, but this can be caused by one
common override -- manually added pages that break the A flow, but are
themselves using the A flow. Which translates into different flows
with the same (non-unique) name.

If you can identify the breaks in the flow and fix them, you should be
in good shape. (Try using Ctrl-A to select all in the flow. If
something isn't selected, that identifies the break point.)
