Microsoft Groove Duplicate Files question

I'm trying to set up a Microsoft Groove workgroup to share files between me and a couple co-workers.

The problem we keep running into is that it very often and seemingly randomly creates duplicates of files with our names.

ie there will be a

File 1.doc
File 1 (John Smith's Version).doc

and so on.

Any idea's why and how to stop that?

This happens when both users update the file and a conflict results.

Can also happen if a 'participant' deletes or moves a file from in a workspace.  Then the 'Master' account will recreate it and duplicated versions start to appear.  Even worse if more than one user has the role of 'Master' for a workspace.
