Collections Duplicated?

Weird one here.
Any help would be appreciated.
My Collections are Duplicating, but only under the Collection group.
When I select Movies, the Collection only shows once.
But, if I select Movies and then Collections, some are duplicated ( not all of them).
Or, if I just select the Collections group  I get the same thing.
Here's a screen print.
Top is from the Movies group.
Bottom is from the Movies\Collections.

Do you have multiple versions of a star wars movie in your collection?

Example: star wars -1080p.mkv

                 star wars - 3D -1080p.mkv

Let me add - the different versions are all in the same folder.

I've done that.
When the next Scan Media Library is run the second one disappears.
Then all the movies in the collection are separated out as normal movies.

Did as you asked to no avail.
Deleted the 2nd and 3rd Collections and then ran the media scan.
The one not deleted disappeared and the 2 movies showed up as separate movies.

I did the following (on a hunch) that fixed the issue;
Deleted the Duplicate Collections.
Added the separate movies to a New Collection, but this time I gave them a new name.
Example: "Blade Runner Collection" was the name of the duplicated collection.
I re-created it but named it "Blade Runner".
Ran the scan and still only have One "Blade Runner" collection.
Next, I renamed the Collection to "Blade Runner Collection". Same as it was originally when it kept duplicating.
Ran the scan again.
The collection did not duplicate!
I did this with the Ant-Man collection with the same results.

Could this have been caused by some type of cache issue?
I'm glad I have a work-around for it - I just hate not knowing what the cause was.

Thanks again for your quick response to this post - appreciate it!
