Every now and then we get requests to fix add-on listings because something failed during the upload process and developers end up in a state where:

* The can't continue with the previous submission process.
* If they try start over, the listing and ID are already there in an Incomplete state, but not linked to their account, so they get a duplicate ID error.

In those cases I need to manually set the owner so they can submit a new version.

We need to make sure that the add-on ID and owner are linked to the listing at the same time.

Sorry this took so long to fix. I only just saw the bug.

I'm sure there are many examples of what triggered this, but here's one example:

Adding qa- because there's no easy way to reproduce an error during submission.

The way I tested this was to raise an exception here then I tried to submit the add-on again without raising an exception. I was able to reproduce the orphaned state ('duplicate add-on ID') before my patch.
