Meaning your users are creating new security groups and naming them
"default" - so you have the "default" default (heh) and then the one
that they created named default?

Are security group names in Nova-Net unqiue? I seem to recall that being
a difference between Nova-Net and Neutron, where security group names
are not unique in Neutron - hence the problem above.
