No, the names are function names in python, they're plain ascii.
And I've checked, I don't have any duplicate names.

I think the PrioList is currently only used for auditors/reactors.
I think I implemented this a decade or two ago :-)
And, yes, I've dumped the list here and found no duplicates. But then I
also could not reproduce the error so far.

Yes, the name would have to be the same, too. And I've checked, I do not
have any reactors/auditors with duplicate names. So my current
hypothesis is, too, that we get some duplication in some circumstances.

Yes, and in our case we explicitly sort the list. So iteration order
should be the same in every invocation.

I've rolled out my change yesterday evening so I think I will not see
the error anymore. But I'll try to find out if we get duplication
