Listview Plugin Duplicate Entries

Hopefully it is ok to ask a question about a plugin! This plugin generates a spreadsheet of data on images, making it easier to organize, search, etc. It seems to work well, except sometimes it generates duplicate entries. This happens particularly with video files, for which I have made virtual copies to split long videos into segments. Sometimes a given segment (or even the original video) can have 4 separate line items on the exported spreadsheet. This tends to happen when creating a list of more than 100 videos + virtual copies. Does anyone know why Listview would generate duplicate entries. I've written to the developer but haven't heard back yet. Thanks!

If helpful, I can upload an example csv file.

Here is a little more detail about the issue. It seems that virtual copies each get two entries (ie lines) in the output. This is true for both photo and video items present in the folder which is being processed. So, if there is a virtual copy, I get one line for the original and two for the virtual copy. Except for virtual copies, each item gets only one entry, as one would expect. Fortunately, it is possible to generate an excel file and then manually go through and delete the duplicates, but it would be nice if this didn't happen! Thanks for any ideas.

By the way, each virtual copy has a unique entry under "Caption," so the data isn't identical for the original and virtual copies. I can see that if there is no unique data in the virtual copy metadata, then it could be appropriate to show "duplicates." Thanks again!
