This is a known issue (https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5838) and apparently occurs if you have more than 32 files/directories in MyDocs. Hopefully the fix will be in the next firmware, but it may be too recent to make it in.

The bug actually isn't a recent one. It's been like that since the earliest prototype I used.

No, it's "normal". I mean it happens to everyone.

And so it looks in my case. Sometimes is see duplicate folders, sometimes they're gone, and then back again, for no apparent reason.

I just got used to it.

The bug's an old one, but the fix has only gone into 2010.08 - this is probably about the date that the PR1.2 firmware will be coming from (if it's going to be out any time soon), but could just miss it as well.

Does this have any relevance to multiple application icons? I get 2, 3 and sometimes even 4 duplicate applciation icons appearing in the app list. The odd thing is it only happens for built in applications like, Clock, Phone, Calendar, Messages etc.
