epub to mobi text duplication

For some reason when I convert my epub files to mobi the story appears twice in one document. For example I have a stephen king book I was converting to put on my new kindle fire and while looking at the converted document (which it successfully converted) on the device the story is there, but when I get to the end of the story it says I am only 56% of the way through the book. If I keep scrolling, the books starts over and is in there again. Meaning that the book that was an epub and is chapters 1-32 is now a mobi file with chapters 1-32 and 1-32 a second time.

I have tried other books with the same problem. Any suggestions? Let me know if this as clear as mud.

Hard to say without access to the epub in question.

We need the epub, not the mobi. And you should attach books that might be copyrighted here. Instead open a bug report as described here: http://calibre-ebook.com/bugs

Sorry about the material. I have attached the Epub and Mobi files for a file from projectguttenberg.org since this material is public domain. I do realize that these books can be found already converted, but I want to know why it is converting the file like it is.

Location 3184: It didnt copy the whole book a 2nd time with this one, but did duplicate the TOC. This is not always the case though as sometimes the whole book appears 2 times.
