Hi Nancy,

If you have users that run the updates more than once either:

1. There is a bug in Drupal causing updates to be run more than once.
2. Users are selecting the update to be re-run of their own accord.
3. Users are selecting the update to be re-run for some other reason.

1. Is a fairly serious issue.
2. Is their fault.
3. depends who is telling them to do it.
