Yes, shared mailboxes don't work nicely with replication. Replication is locking only the original user, so for shared mailboxes multiple dsyncs can be running in parallel and messing things up. A bit troublesome to fix this. I've had this issue happening for a couple of years now for our mails and I haven't bothered fixing it, so it's unlikely I'll do it anytime soon.. Although I haven't seen that many duplicates of the mails - just 10 or so.
