I still think it is a timing problem in my case with picking up the mail...  
Most of the time when I get a duplicate, the SIZE of each email is different.  
Says to me that maybe kmail (or its ungodly complicated 'resources') are 
picking up the mail twice, because it may still be under processing by 
procmail while akonadi is picking it up the first time.  Then it gets picked up 
the second time in its finished form.

I've made some changes to my procmailrc to try to prevent this.  We shall see 
whether it stops the dupes.
