Bug Description

When Liferea 1.4.26 tries to synchronise some feeds, it creates duplicate news (example: ZdNet french feed set in examples: http://rss.zdnet.fr/feeds/rss/actualites/).

Again, confirmed. Screenshot attached...

About the zdnet feed, duplicate appears because of the ads. I made this little script that remove the ads and so the duplicates. Then in liferea, you just need to run the script (command) instead of using the url.

I suspect this might be a bogus bug:
I get duplicate entries in Google Reader too every now and then, and the reason is that there are small differences between the two versions. Basically, when someone edits a post (e.g. to correct a typo), a new rss feed entry is created...
Can someone check if the duplicates are in fact exactly the same?

I've recently noticed receiving duplicates of a few feeds too.
The duplicates appear to be exactly the same with no edits, nor are they duplicated/double posted at source.
