The current list of Featured Personas under "Get Addons" is:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - a
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - b
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - c
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - d
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 - a

Ok, I get it, some people are obsessed enough with Harry Potter to want a choice of a giant pile of personas, though by now I would've thought these would be rotated. Regardless, you'll notice "a" is listed twice.

This module should autodetect duplicates to prevent this. Also, clicking the "see all" link for this module brings up AMO but its Featured Personas section only has the 4 different ones listed above plus 2 non-Potter personas. Is there some caching issue making these lists different?

Just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I checked this under Firefox 5 & 7 under Linux as well as Firefox 5 under Windows XP. Seems to show the same everywhere.
A quick glance in the feature manager shows that these are featured for all locales as well as en-US.  I thought this might be because "a" was on a list twice but that doesn't appear to be the case.

This seems like a legitimate bug, but I'm not sure if might be fixed/wontfixed depending on how soon we push out the new feature code.  QA bug for that is bug 672551

This looks very similar to bug 629095

Should be taken care of with bug 664047 which uses SETS.
