system updates repeatedly applying the same update

10-STABLE-p5 FreeBSD 10-STABLE-p5 #0: Fri Dec 6 02:13:09 UTC 2013 root@…:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64

Repeating the fetch after the install shows the same file to be updated.
I looked at the /var/db/freebsd-update and the /usr/sha/man/man2/extattr*

a hard link. (all the exattr*.2.gz are hardlink to the same man page)
As a final test I rolled back all of the updates until there were no updates
installed, then ran fetch/install, but once this update is reached, the update show the same problem.
