Using empathy and "people nearby" in Ubuntu 12.04, my contacts appears twice.
This bothers me, how can I correct this ?

This is due to
avahi which will probe ipv6 and ipv4 network as you can see with:
avahi-browse -t _presence._tcp
Each user presence is broadcasted in ipv6 and ipv4.
Thus, if you don't need ipv6, you can set
/etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf. Don't forget to restart
sudo /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon restart
In my experience, it can take several minutes for empathy to remove all spurious duplicate contacts.
