Hi, Dannon.

        Thanks for the tip. No, I was not reusing the cluster names exactly to 
avoid previous data to mess up with my fresh new deployments. There were indeed 
about 8 buckets referring to clusters that don`t exist anymore. Write now I 
can`t remove my current cluster by the web interface because it never comes up.

        What would be the safe way to allow you to see my instance?

Did you reuse the same cluster name for either of these?  This would explain 
conflicting settings - there's more to a cluster than just the running 
instances and persistent volumes.

That form retrieves those listings from the S3 buckets in your account.  Each 
cluster has its own S3 bucket -- you can identify them with the 
yourCluster.clusterName files in the listing.  These contain lots of 
information about your galaxy clusters (references to volumes, universe 
settings, etc.), and if you're attempting to eliminate a cluster completely 
(you never want to restart it and don't want *anything* preserved), you should 
delete the buckets referring to them as well.  When you ask Cloudman to 
terminate and remove a cluster permanently, it removes all of this for you, and 
I'd recommend always using the interface to do this and not doing it manually.

Definitely let me know what else I can do to help.  If you have a running 
instance you'd like for me to look at directly I'd be happy to do so -- maybe 
this is indeed some weird issue that we can work around better.
