"A type with the same name already exists" error when trying to add Meta part to Blog Post type.

Created a site with "Blog" recipe. Enabled Vandelay.Meta feature, and went to Content -> Content Types -> Blog Post ->Add Parts -> Meta -> Save

And then I get the error. Am I doing something wrong? 


Edit: I didn't notice this before, but it looks like the Meta part was successfully added despite the error message. Not sure if the error msg is from Orchard or from this module. I am able to enter the tags in the dashboard when editing posts, and see them on the front end (via "View Source").

This is on Orchard 1.6

Are you sure you don't have another module that exposes its own Meta part?

Yes, i'm sure. I haven't installed any other modules that would have a "Meta" part. Did enabling this Vandelay feature automatically add the Meta part to the Blog Post part? If that's the case then (and if so, I didn't know about it), that would explain the error.

It does, if I remember correctly. But the part shouldn't even appear as a choice then.
