That's interesting! Thanks for your input. I've tried Antoine's minimal
configuration and can confirm that commenting out (package-initialize)
resolves the problem. So, it really means that lsp-mode has an autoload
cookie which when evaluated twice causes the bug.

But now I wonder to which package should we assign the bug report,
lsp-mode, emacs, some other package?..
