If you install Tritonus' file readers and writers, Java Sound will report the same audio file type several times in the returned array

E.g. the following method prints:
Supported target types: au aif wav gsm mp3 au wav aif aifc

public static void listSupportedTargetTypes() {
  String strMessage = "Supported target types:";
  AudioFileFormat.Type[] aTypes = 
  for (int i = 0; i < aTypes.length; i++) {
    strMessage += " " + aTypes[i].getExtension();

This bug should be fixed by using an internal hash list or so when assembling the file type array.
