Home Page URL 2X in Yahoo = Yahoo Penalty

A thread over at WebmasterWorld named Home page indexed twice discusses how two members noticed that their home page URLs are listed twice in Yahoo! Search results. Same URL, same content, two listings.

Seems strange. WMW moderator, agerhart, says one word, "Penalty."

Senior Member, internetheaven, adds by saying;

I'm afraid that all evidence points to that. I have only one site that displays this phenomenon and has been doing so for almost a year now.
It is also the only site of mine ever to receive a penalty from Yahoo which it has been carrying for almost two years. Considering it was a programming error I think a two year ban is a little harsh but hey, what do I know .........

True? I have a feeling we will hear from Yahoo! in that thread, if it is not true.
