Actually, it's almost always (in my experience) the result of an unclean
shutdown during expire.  If a partial history.n file is left behind, it
gets appended to by the next expire run and then it will end up with a ton
of duplicate entries.

If it's just a case of the above, it's completely harmless and the next
expire run will clean up the problem.
