Well yes, and in fact this is the way you must configure your PDA
device; calendar and tasks syncing through SyncML and those conduits
defaulted to "Do Nothing" on Palm Desktop. If you don't then the
sync process presumes that you've synched the device to two different
computers and voila, duplicate entries. Sync it again and it starts
to become the ancient math example of doubling the grains of rice.
Once you have the duplicate entries you have to manually remove them
from ALL the places they exist: on the PDA, on Oracle calendar, etc.
There are some utilities out there for automating duplicate removal,
but I'd make darn sure you had a good hotsync (with the Calendar and
Tasks set to do nothing first of course) of the unit before you started:
