Your root filesystem is not mountet twice (right?). It has that output because 
df gets its information from the proc filesystem instead of from the normal 
/etc/mtab. (/etc/mtab is a symlink to a /proc file). I hope the kernel guys 
fixes that though as it is annoying the hell out of me too. :-)

But dont worry... It is just a cosmetic bug... :-)
