Right - the data is sorted but it is the amalgamation of two different
data sources with one appended to the other.

Obviously  two sorted files with one appended to the other = an
unsorted file. Any duplicates that are not consecutive are not real
duplicates in my use case.

My thanks to everybody esp Dimitre (who was the first) that tried this
out and helped me get to the bottom of this.
