Duplicate Child Node Name Exception

Hi! I'm having a problem when using simple workflow and transformation from doc to pdf. I trigger the workflow to copy an item to another space where a rule says that the item should be transformed to pdf and copied to a space. This works fine the first time. But the second time i get this error:

ERROR [ui.common.Utils] Failed to approve the document due to system error: Duplicate child name not allowed: {filename}
org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.DuplicateChildNodeNameException: Duplicate child name not allowed: {filename}

Can't alfresco replace this file and update it with a new version? It doesn't matter if i delete the previous doc-file that was created if i keep the pdf. As long as any of the two files are left nothing happens besides the duplicate error. It works well when i replace the recently created doc-file in webdav. Then the pdf gets updated.

I use alfresco 2.1 Enterprise version.

Help appreciated
