Well, possible solutions I can think of:

a) use GUID #1 for rc/release builds, GUID #1 or #2 for betas, and a
random GUID for each nightly. One drawback here is that you would not be
able to check that installation over an already existing installation
works correctly in nightlies.
b) it's probably possible to provide zip/xz/whatever archives of nightly
builds along with the installer. This would allow you to test everything
except installation of LibO, having as many parallel LibreOffices as you

Either way, you should probably file this problem in bugzilla or relay
it to the build people, cause I'm just talking – they are the ones who
will have to solve it.
