There's two issues here. One is with quick installer and one is with
GenericSetup. This mailing list is not the right place to discuss issues
with the first, please do that on the Plone developers mailing list.

I think the problem is in Products.GenericSetup.components - in _initUtilities
elif factory is not None:
self.context.registerUtility(factory(), provided, name)
without first checking of a utility with this name for this interface already
The code here does seem indeed to be wrong. There's two modes for GS
import handlers, one being with purge and one without. The code in
question does not support that correctly. It does work in some cases, as
the underlying registerUtility function first checks if the component
was already registered. It does so effectively by checking the newly
registered object and the one that is already registered for equality.
This check obviously fails in case of creating a new utility via a factory.
There is a bug report for this already at:
I don't know how to go about fixing this problem since the
infrastructure is not set up to handle this. Realistically, if there is
an uninstall of a component needed, I would think it could be handled in
the Products.GenericSetup.components class.
GenericSetup doesn't have any uninstall support, so this is not the
right place to handle this.
Your main issue here is with quick installer.
