I get "Someone has already registered that SSH key"

Hi

I used to access BitBucket using a username, duneroot. But because of the changes on 18th Feb, I set up a new user account, username: tomkerwill

When I come to add my public ssh key to this account, I get the following message:

Someone has already regitered that SSH key

... I am guesing that the key is associated with my old username, duneroot, but that was disabled on 18th February. How do I fix this so I can use the ssh keys with my new account?

Tom,

To help make sure your repositories remain secure, we recommend that you generate a new SSH key for this new identity.

So I have to have a new user? I would say that this a huge floor.
