Rather than the merit of the patch, you seem to dislike the process that 
led to it. I am not really sure what's wrong with "While staring at the 
code, I noticed this duplicated message...". While this isn't what 
happened (you simply assumed it), I would have thought that patching a 
bug, even if trivial as an incorrect string, may be what matters.

Anyway, I get your point. So the patch is dropped. ;-)
