Can someone verify a toolbox issue for me?

I'm redoing our toolbox. I went into ANSI Inch Hi-Collar Spring Lock Washer. When I did this it showed that all the configuration names are the same. When I try to exit it gives me the "Duplicate Name" error.

 

First can someone verify that this is not a problem with Solid Work ToolBox. I suspect it is not but wanted to make sure. Someone at my company has been messing with the toolbox parts over the last 5 years or so and I'm guessing they somehow nuked this part.

 

Second is there an easy work around? The only thing I can think of is to "Allow custom Configs...", delete all the names. I would then have to export the excel and build new names and import.

 

The real issue is how these got there in the first place and why doesn't the Tool Box rebuild them if "Allow custom configs..." is turned off?
