Hi Dominik,

no, it does not indicate a hash collision. It rather shows that TLC
explored the same state twice. It shouldn't, because it's obviously
inefficient, but doesn't invalidate the model checking result.

Technically this exception is thrown when the in-memory fingerprint set
gets merged into a previously written set on disk and both sets contain
an identical fingerprint.

Can you privately share the spec with which this bug has happened? How
long - on what machine - did it take to run into the exception?
