I have to qualify my jubilation above:

I was wrong to assume that upgrading hal fixed the duplication problem.  It turns out that RESTARTING haldaemon makes the duplication go away, temporarily, until the next reboot. (In both of the upgrades i mentioned, i, naturally, restarted haldaemon after upgrading hal, but after a reboot the duplication came back)

(Although, Dan, you still identified the source of the problem correctly, of course)

i still have not exhausted my new debugging tasklist or new googling keywords, since your reply, but it's taking a while, so here are some preliminary findings:

moving /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent... did not help. If anything, it may have made my X session hang (i'm still investigating, can't get back into gnome, possibly other causes)

On both systems the udev is "udev-120-5.20080421git.fc9*"
