First, any dupe checking longer than the default of 30 seconds on
APRS-IS would potentially interfere with messaging and other fixed
packet operations.

Second, it appears that there is something very strange in DG0ES's
setup.  He is running UI-View and the packets being repeated are
actually from APRS-IS (note the two occurrences of the qAo construct).
The first qAo is converted to all upper case which tells me that this
may be a log file replay?  Or his UI-View is connected to a full stream
and is looping the packets back to APRS-IS after significant processing
delays?  I am sure my list is not all-inclusive.

So, try sending an email to DG0ES and let him know what is happening as
this is definitely a problem with his station.
