Workbench doesn't validate for duplicate collector names

I've just discovered that the workbench validator doesn't highlight multiple instances of the same collector's name in the same record (e.g. as Collector and Collector4). If there are duplicate collector names, the dataset validates in the workbench, but when you upload the dataset, it will stop as soon as it reaches a record that has duplicate collectors. This is a good thing, but it would be handy if such records were highlighted by the workbench validator.

duplicate collector names

I have another question related to multiple instances of the same name. I seem to get upload errors when the same person is the collector and the preparator. Can't people have more than one role per record?

same here

I have run into this problem as well. The upload process throws an exception when using/creating the same agent for collector and determiner.....any resolution to this issue?
