IIRC there was a really old problem with lingering machine name
registrations. It prevented nspawn being used multiple times too
(without specifying a new, unique, machine name explicitly)

I can't recall where the problem lied but I suspect it was in an old
kernel. Doubt this is your issue, but figured I'd mention it just in
case. It was quite old (1.5y+ IIRC)
