I think I frakked things up a bit for myself while playing around with buckets.
I was having trouble deleting buckets, so I deleted a user, which got rid of all the buckets...okay.
Now, If I try to re-create a user, or a bucket from one of those previous users, I am unable to, and it tells me that user or bucket exists.
Is there a purging of these no-longer-used names? Does DreamHost keep those around for a certain amount of time in case someone accidentally deletes data?
Also, I wonder why I have so much trouble deleting buckets..DreamObjects keeps telling me that a bucket is not empty, even if it is empty.
