Lightroom Classic: Export with 'Add to Catalog option' duplicates images in catalog

my new Lightroom Classic does not work classic while exporting:
In the export process (of course with the option "Add to this catalog")
the exported files do not appear until the "work bar" has already disappeared long ago. So very, very slowly and sometimes not completely.
If I redo the export process (with the identical settings) and the confirmed request to overwrite existing data, LR creates duplicates in the export folder. This is obviously a database error, because in the folder the exported data exist physically only once ...

Have I described this complicated enough? :-))

And yes, I have tried it with my existing (for LR Classic updated) catalog, as well as with a freshly produced new catalog. Always the same mistake.

Thanks for any Help, Kai
