Exchange 2010 clear move request fails

In the process of migrating users to Exchange 2010 we will occasionally get an error clearing move requests through the console after they have completed.

--------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Exchange Error
--------------------------------------------------------
Action 'Clear Move Request' could not be performed on object 'user name'.

User Name
Failed
Error:
Couldn't find a move request that corresponds to the specified identity domain.name/user name'.
--------------------------------------------------------
OK
--------------------------------------------------------

We have found these can usually be cleared through PowerShell using Remove-MoveRequest "user name" and you can add -verbose to the end to get details if there are any issues.
