Yes, I can confirm that my database does not have any duplicate entries 
like this.  I took the DB I loaded in, pulled out all instances of 
sumaildrop into a sorted file, created a second file that was sorted & 
uniqued, and compared the difference.  I then took the differences, and 
made sure that where they occurred, that the duplicates were in completely 
separate entry containers -- They all were.  No part of the DB has 
duplicate sumaildrop values. :(

And unfortunately, I have no stack trace for this, it didn't leave a core 
file behind.
