The description of the Benefactor badge indicates that it is a non-recurring badge: "First bounty you manually awarded on your own question". However, at tex.sx, user Raphink was awarded the Benefactor badge twice (link):

A possible reason is that Raphink awarded his first two bounties on one of his own questions within one second (see the time stamp popup in the link).

  • Raphink apparently has the FGITW when it comes to awarding bounties. He deserves the second badge.

I've pushed a change for the next build that'll prevent this, it was incorrectly grouping distinct awards including PostId (for the reason, once that was added)...which obviously doesn't work so well.

The user has been corrected as well. Not rushing a build for this since I'm out the door in a few...but it's so incredibly rare I don't think it'll hurt to wait.
