#66 Satellite Appearing Twice in category

Data files (5)

For newly loaded satellites it appears they may be loaded twice into their category file.

To replicate:
Take a new user without a preference directory.
run gpredict and do a network update including the tle-new.txt from celestrak.
Then reconfigure the current module.
Type deb in the filter field. (This shows 4 satellites for me.)
Then switch to the Latest Launches group. (This lists 6 for me. 3 are from the 4 above and 3 are duplicates of the first 3.)

Examination of the .cat files shows similar issues.

    Interesting that it doesn't occur with all satellites.

    What appears to happen is the satellites are first written when the file is processed. The second time us when they are processed as a new satellite. The second time it is processed, the satellite is not new and works as expected.
