	It was reported before (I couldn't find the message, but I
remember testing and confirming it), so I'm cc:ing Frank (djpig) so
he can take a look at it. :)

	Here is how you can reproduce it:

1) Pick any package, let's use the above:

2) Choose any version, let's pick sid.
   The URL looks like:

   The pathway in red bar looks like:
	>> Debian  >> Packages  >> sid (unstable) >> libdevel >> libx11-dev

3) Choose an arch to download, let's pick s390.
   The URL looks like:

   The pathway in red bar looks like:
	>> Debian  >> Packages  >> sid >> libx11-dev >> s390 >> Download

4) Now, click on the "s390" link on the red bar:
   The URL looks like:

   The pathway in red bar looks like:
	>> Debian  >> Packages  >> sid (unstable) >> libdevel >> libx11-dev

5) Only arch s390 shows up, try to click on it to download.
   The URL looks like:

   And finally the error: "arch set more than once in path"

	Hope this helps.
