Lightroom: Import Bug (Multiple JPEGs) in 3.4.1

I am re-importing my whole collection of about 50,000 photos on LR3 one or a few folders at a time. I am converting to DNG on import to a separate Hard Drive on a folder with the same name as the original (ex: 2010-05-08 - Scotland).
Some of the folders contain only RAW images (CR2) and some other contain RAW and JPG. Occasionally (about one time out of five) when the file is created, Lightroom has copied not just one JPG image but also created an identical 2nd, a 3rd and sometimes even a 4th. If I close Lightroom and restart it usually things go back to normal (but not always).

To sum it up:
Original folder 2010-05-08 - Scotland contains:
_MG9293.CR2
_MG9293.JPG

New folder will contain:
_MG9293.DNG
_MG9293.JPG

But sometimes it will contain
_MG9293.DNG
_MG9293.JPG
_MG9293-2.JPG

or:
_MG9293.DNG
_MG9293.JPG
_MG9293-2.JPG
_MG9293-3.JPG

or even:
_MG9293.DNG
_MG9293.JPG
_MG9293-2.JPG
_MG9293-3.JPG
_MG9293-4.JPG

I have no changed the settings at all, so this can only be a bug IMO.

System Used:
Windows 7 64-bit
4GB RAM, SATA300 RAID0 1TB, SATA300 1.5TB Hard Drive for storage (X2)
