I don't know whether it is should be a bug report or a feature request. I let you decide.
When adding a new print composer, QGIS doesn't allow to use a name that is already used for another print composer in the project.
However, u can further rename this print composer with the "forbidden" name, having then in your project more than one print composers with same name.

Is there a reason why using same name is not allowed during creation?

IMHO, I think that there should be one name <==> one print composer.

How are you renaming the composer to a duplicate name? This should not be possible, so if you can posts the steps you do then I can track this down.

Hi Nyall
In the Composer Manager, when you click on the Rename button, you can't give it an existing name. But that is allowed when you double click the name of the composer.
