Ah, I'm wrong - this could be hitting either the ('series', 'patch')
constraint - which has duplicate detection - or the ('series', 'number')
constraint - which does not have duplicate detection. I will send
another patch which fixes this (but probably not until tomorrow).

Feel free to not send the error logs at this point :)
