I just checked it and the reason for the duplicate listing is that we
use a caseinsensitive compare but care about slash and backslash.  In
this regard the files are different and both get listed.  I hesitate
to change the comparison due to possible side effects.

You have specified the keyrings at two different places or simply
added the default keyring a second time in the gpg.conf.  Please make
sure to consistently use slashes or backslashes.  Compare gpg.conf
against the Registry setting HKCU\Software\GNU\GnuPG:HomeDir - I guess
that the Registry entry used forward slashes for historic reasons.
