[aprssig] qAR & qAr, same igate

I'm seeing some of my packets duplicated on the APRS-IS stream.
Packets come across first with "qAR,CALLSIGN" as the identifying
igate, then again a few minutes later with "qAr,CALLSIGN*" as the
igate. The Q-construct is different plus there's an asterisk after
qAr - Packet was received indirectly (via an intermediate
server) from an IGate using the ,I construct. The callSSID
following the qAr it the callSSID of the IGate.
qAR - Packet was received directly (via a verified connection)
from an IGate using the ,I construct. The callSSID following
the qAR it the callSSID of the IGate.
So... Is this expected behavior or is something else going on?
