When viewing comments with enough replies to activate
pagination, some pages contain heavy numbers of
duplicate comments. Reproducing case:

This comment:

http://yro.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=108411&cid=9220311

Vewed in flat mode with a user comment limit of 100,
creates three pages of replies:
1)
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=108411&threshold=-1&commentsort=0&tid=172&mode=flat&pid=9215045
2)
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=108411&threshold=-1&commentsort=0&tid=172&mode=flat&startat=100&pid=9215045
3)
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=108411&threshold=-1&commentsort=0&tid=172&mode=flat&startat=200&pid=9215045

Please note that while all the comments on page 3 are
unique, the last comment on page 1 is about 85% of the
way down page 2. This is leading to a lot of
redundantly displayed comments. Bug happens in Nested
mode as well, with any value for user comment limit
(50-100).

This bug makes reply counting for Trollback much
harder. plz fix k thx.
