I find the problem usually occurs if you convert while still in the "polygon" mode of the Sub-d. Not sure what the bug is, but that is when I get the duplicate. To avoid this be sure to convert only from object mode. If you're still getting dups, then I'm at a loss. Open Hypergraph before converting to see what nodes change/appear.
