[ovs-discuss] duplicate port names in DB

Is there documentation on the database available?
I've got a problem with redundant entries in my ovsdb... Is there a way to find out which entry is the right one?

May 03 09:51:23|00002|vsctl|WARN|eth1: database contains duplicate port name
May 03 09:51:23|00003|vsctl|WARN|eth1: database contains duplicate port name
May 03 09:51:23|00004|vsctl|WARN|eth1: database contains duplicate port name

May 03 09:51:23|00006|vsctl|WARN|eth0: database contains duplicate port name
May 03 09:51:23|00007|vsctl|WARN|eth2: database contains duplicate port name
NB: I've got a bit of a weird setup (Xen-Dom0 virtualized on KVM machine - running linux-18.104.22.168-xen and openvswitch-1.1.0pre2), which might be responsible for this issue... could it be that a mac address change (which might happen upon reboot) triggers insertion of a 'new' interface into the DB?
P.S.: Another question would be whether use of the ovsdb is compulsory in post-1.0.0 versions of openvswitch, or whether there's a way to keep using the configuration file used for 0.9x-versions.
