Yes, it happened to me too today.

I`m not sure what A2 was doing. Last night sunny staines gave us a message for the update and told us we`d have to reboot, and then go back for another update. I couldn`t get the second one, presumably because the download site was overcrowded so I got it this AM. I must admit I thought that`s what I downloaded today.

Explanation of repeated updates, from the a-squared forum:

"This is not a bug. When it is required to change the base signature file, we will publish a new version of that file. You are NOT downloading the same data again and again, you are downloading newer versions of that file with changed content. Even if the file's original creation date is October 6, 2005."
