I've seen this on other web forums too. I think it has to do with the SQL layer returning success codes too slowly.... an upper layer gives up after a timeout period and tries to write the data again. All the writes end up succeeding, and you end up with multiple entries.

Congratulations!

In the interest of consistency I will add a comment in this thread, too.

So, done.

Sounds to me like a job for the Fonz.

That's what it claims when it's sober, but it's a different story after a martooni or two.
