I've fixed the bug (if it is a bug and not a "feature") but simply calling jQuery.unique inside the .parent() method.

                var ret =,n);
                if ( a && typeof a == "string" )
                        ret = jQuery.multiFilter(a,ret);
-               return this.pushStack( ret );
+               return this.pushStack( jQuery.unique(ret) );

I don't see any major consequences from this and it would be an easy patch for jQuery core. (Of course you could also patch pushStack to ensure things are unique, but that could be overkill.)
