Deleting CloudFormation VPC stack without disassociating the Elastic IP causes delete to fail

This is a bug in the deallocation order of the elastic IP address and was introduced when CloudFormation went from single to parallel processing.

AWS are aware of it, and hopefully they can get it on the roadmap to get it fixed soon. In the meantime, the somewhat unacceptable workaround is to run the remove-cfn stack again.

(We actually have a helper which runs the remove, and keeps calling delete until it's finally decided to be deleted)
