I am trying to clear a diagram and then redraw it.. when I run use diagramInstance.clear.. it throws an exception when I add the first node.. and I think it is because the node still exists in the layers.

I have a node with id ='start'

I have it in a layer.. I clear the diagram. I try to add the start node back.. and get this:
the goal is to clear the diagram and the layers to start fresh.. 

is there a preferred method to really clear the diagram at runtime .. or is there a big in clear that it is not learning the layers?

can I reset the layers?
