Did you edit one of the jobs? Some Editors (joe) create a file with an
"~" at the end as a backup. If you edit one of your cronjob-scripts
in /etc/cron.hourly/ , you may create a second file that will be run
by cron too.
This happened here some time ago and it took some time to figure out
the reason.
