Automatic “Possible duplicate” is definitely duplicated

I just saw this question closed as duplicate, but the note displaying the source question is shown twice. And yes I tested, both links go to the same question.

what's up with that?

    Apparently this question is itself a duplicate, heh. – Tim Stone Feb 3 '11 at 7:30
  • However true this is, I would have never found it to be a duplicate based on the fact that the wording doesn't support the concept, and also the links are now 404'd - at least I was courteous enough to take a screenshot ;-) – Chase Florell Feb 3 '11 at 16:15

The question was closed as a duplicate, reopened, then closed as a duplicate again. Since the notification is just part of the post body, there's nothing to prevent it from being added multiple times in cases where the question is closed as a duplicate more than once. This is undesirable, but probably not a scenario that comes up often enough that it can't just be manually corrected.

In fact, it seems that Robert Harvey tried to roll back the edit that added in the second notification, but your tag edit collided with the rollback and reinserted it.
