I'm pretty sure those "duplicates" are actually record earlier and 
record later "warnings" so you can decide, you know, since this is the 
single most-important TV event in the history of TV, I'd rather attempt 
to record it on its first run in case there's an issue or a 
reschedule/cancellation of the repeat showings--otherwise, if I miss it, 
what in the world would I talk about around the water cooler at work.

Real duplicates are shows that will not record because they've already 
been recorded (at the point at which you're looking at the upcoming 
recordings page) and match on the specified duplicate matching criteria 
for the rule.  Once a show gets recorded, if you go back to the upcoming 
recordings page--set to show important only--all the "Record Earlier" 
listings for that show will be gone.

I think you also might find a bit of a surprise when you upgrade to the 
new SVN MythWeb and find out that it now works properly.  :)
