I'm having the same problem. I was updating album artwork when all the duplicates were created. Each one points to the same song as the original. When I look in the XML file for iTunes, I have two entries for about 95% of the songs in my library. The difference in the two is that one entry shows all the data I set, such as ratings. The second entry shows album artwork info. Here is an example:

Original entry:

<key>786</key>
<dict>
<key>Track ID</key><integer>786</integer>
<key>Name</key><string>Live Wire</string>
<key>Artist</key><string>AC/DC</string>
<key>Album Artist</key><string>AC/DC</string>
<key>Composer</key><string>Bon Scott, Malcolm Young</string>
<key>Album</key><string>High Voltage</string>
<key>Genre</key><string>Rock</string>
<key>Kind</key><string>AAC audio file</string>
<key>Size</key><integer>5675212</integer>
<key>Total Time</key><integer>349946</integer>
