Seen that one time, was a strange behavior of a form with file upload and 
When text paste from word with an unusual type of quotes (don't remember 
which one) in textarea, then the form did the same thiing as you with some 
values duplicate.
I didn't append with any normal text.
Solution i found was to put the file input at the first position of the 
form, and then
it works all time (test IE only i think).
Hope this helps
