Yes, I knew that. 🙂

Nope. I use your plugin on two sites. Problems I’ve described happen on both. I use Press This and it imports the image to the site itself, then your plugin imports it again. I’ve even had it with images I uploaded directly to the site and the first save will duplicate the image that was only on my site – not imported from anywhere. I’ve also had it reduplicate it when I just Save Draft up to 4 times (all I’ve tested) so far.
If I wasn’t clear – in all cases the images definitely DID exist on my site then the plugin just duplicated them.
