"An error has occurred while collecting data for Administrative Templates."

Over the weekend, I performed an upgrade on our profile management product (Citrix UPM).  During the late hours, I accidentally skipped over a step.  If you review http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/user-profile-manager-5-x/upm-upgrade-den.html - "To upgrade .... profile", you'll see that steps 4-5 indicate you should remove the old template, close the window, then open the window again to add your new template.  I simply removed the old and then added the new without closing in between.  Now, when I look at my GPO Settings I see this error:

Namespace 'Citrix' is already defined as the target namespace for another file in the store. File C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions\ctxprofile5.1.1.admx, line 4, column 49

Any idea how to fix this?  The policy still seems to be working OK, but I'm wondering if there will be trouble down the line.  Also, I can't view my settings as a summary - only by "editing" the GPO and canceling all changes.  I know skipping that step is the cause of the problem because I've run through this upgrade 4-5x now and that's the only thing I did differently.

Thanks!
