Either your Mailman installation is sending reminders twice, or some
other backup, test, prior host, whatever Mailman installation is sending

The first situation will occur if you install Mailman package that
creates a 'system' crontab (e.g. /etc/cron.d/mailman) for mailman's cron
jobs and you create a 'user' crontab (e.g. /var/spool/cron/mailman) for
mailman's cron jobs.

To see what is happening, you need to get copies of both reminder mails
with all headers intact and examine the Received: headers to determine
where the mail originates.

Also, see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/EoCE>.
