Are you sure about that?  For as long as I can remember, the duplicate
check has always been done very early int he scheduling process and
anything marked as a duplicate was never reconsidered.

For now, I'll try to make the duplicate check ignore oldrecorded and
recorded entries with future end times.  That should catch this
particular case.  FYI, it will be tomorrow before I can get to it in
case someone else wants to try.
