How odd. I wasn't looking at the time, and didn't notice the repeats!
I have no idea why, to be honest...  looking...

AH - I just had a look in /var/cache/apt/apt-file/  - I have 3 mirrors in
there with a .gz file of each!  ( archive....   au.archive...    and
mirror.pacific.net ) 

Evidently apt-file is obligingly showing results from each of them.

Check: Just removed one, and now I get 2 hits each, so that was the reason.
