Very frequently in Slashdot's RSS feed, I'll find two entries linking to the same article, with the only difference being a typo fix or other minor correction. I don't believe that editing an article should result in a duplicate RSS entry.

Example from today (2010-09-17):

Honda's Exoskeletons Help You Walk Like Asim by timothy
