True - if you go through the add process once to generate the situation 
(this occurs almost every time I start with a clean database) then 
delete everything then re add, that generally will work.

However, that eventually started to take half a day to just modify the 
inputs.  It is pretty obvious in the database that an incorrect card got 
added - so I deleted it to just save time.
