This problem occurs when a computer is moving 2 times quickly.
Example :
10:00:00 - Computer C moves from Domain A to Domain B
10:01:00 - Engine on Domain B collects the registration info and Computer C is created in Domain B. A move task is created and scheduled to be executed in 2 minutes
10:02:00 - Computer C moves from Domain B to Domain A
10:02:30 - Engine on Domain A collects the registration info?
10:03:00 - Move task is executed on Domain B but as "Last Run Date" is more recent in Domain A the move is ignored.
Computer C is present in Domain A and Domain B
