I wrote to Biglist about the duplicate postings, and this was the
response, with some comments of mine:

If you guys see duplicates and can provide this info, forward it
to me directly and I'll summarize and send it to them.

I told them that I didn't think this was the problem, as they'd
probably show up about the same time (as did Eckhard's note to me),
but please check.
