cool. Looks like someone messed up/forgot an exception clause in an if-then-else tree. Enchantments on mob dropped items are handled by a pseudo-random number generator filtered through a bit of math to give it a certain possibility of happening. Getting the same enchantment twice in a row would be extremely unlikely, so maybe they didn't think they needed to worry about it being possible.

You got yourself a rare drop there, friend.

They've been fiddling the enchantment system in the lastest snapshots (thankfully removing the god-armor option from stacking protections).

Given the number of show-stoppers (AKA game breakers) still extant, it won't likely be a high priority, but always good to let 'em know ya care…

(Some earlier versions had ways to stack enchantments from within the game – via clever use of mechanics rather than commands, but my impression is that these had been removed....)
