Yes, there's a bug.  Is your node job a Grid job?  There is a known
problem that Grid jobs are more likely to generate two terminated events
in the log.  This problem has at least been reduced in 6.7.12.

One thing to check -- look at the actual user log of your job, and check
that you just got two terminated events as opposed to the job actually
running twice.  If all that happened is that you got two terminated
events, it won't really hurt anything except that you'll get the above
warning in DAGMan.  Most likely this is what happened.
