I always just remove the corresponding .upload file when that happens,
and I always upload straight to incoming on ftp-master/non-us rather
than messing around with upload queues (which seem to be a frequent
cause of problems from my impression of the number of people asking
questions about them). In the case of an upload queue, you may have to
upload a .commands file to delete the extra files; there's documentation
of this somewhere ...
