Is it impossible to use the same build override twice with bodhi?

I need to update my cross-gcc package, but that depends on my cross-binutils
package which is still in updates-testing (should the build process fail, even
though it is pushed to updates-testing?).

To do this I need to add a build override with bodhi for the cross-binutils
package - however, this doesn't work, presumably because I've added it before
and the override has now expired.

If I try adding the override, I see:

	warthog>bodhi -r F16 -o cross-binutils- -N "Required to build cross-gcc"
	Error: buildroot override for u'cross-binutils-' already exists

If I list the overrides I have currently in operation, I see:

	warthog>bodhi --my-overrides
	0 Buildroot Overrides submitted by dhowells

I can see the expired override:

	warthog>bodhi --my-overrides --show-expired
	4 Buildroot Overrides submitted by dhowells

	[ cross-binutils- ]

	 * Expiration: 2012-06-03 00:00:00
	 * Expired: 2012-06-03 00:06:17

but I can't get rid of it.  I've tried:

	warthog>bodhi -r F16 -E cross-binutils-
	Override cross-binutils- already expired!

but that doesn't work (unsurprisingly).

Any suggestions?  Do I have to either advance the version of the cross-binutils
package or commit it to fedora-updates?
