Routes showing up twice in route command

I am having network problems and hopefully have a pointer to my problem. Executing the route command shows:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * U 0 0 0 eth1 * U 0 0 0 eth1 * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 eth0 * U 0 0 0 eth2 * U 0 0 0 eth2 * U 0 0 0 lo
default Wfleet43 UG 0 0 0 eth0

Why does each entry show up twice? Could this be causing a problem?
I tried removing one of each route, but they come back on reboot.
Any information would be helpful.

What Distro is this running on....

If this is a Redhat based OS, please look in:

ls -l /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

for a route file...

It is redhat linux.
There is an ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1, and ifcfg-eth2 with the correct data. They were last modified in 2004.
None of the other files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts have been modified since installation.

linuxconf --hint routing returns

/etc/sysconfig/static-routes has length of 0 and is empty.

Why would these routes be added twice at boot time?


network, route
