HB-Reg Error - An item with the same key has already been added

Trying to feed an .csv file into HB-Reg.
Got the error message "An item with the same key has already been added".

All right. Checked all the names (they all was unique). Tryed to create SMALL files with just 3-5 variables. Every time I open .csv with wizard (or from menu - but w/o existing project) - I get the same error message.
Then - disregard the message - I create a simple model - 2-3 IVs. Run it (it runs!). HB-Reg tells me - everything is fine.
I save this project. And (w/o closing) open a new data file. Works fine...
I had other error for the original file  - just one category in a "category variable". But I couldn't get to this message because all was blocked with "the same key" message.
HB-Reg V4.0.4 (yes, I updated it), Windows 7 32-bit, UK regional settings

Please check the file for two columns with the same label.  That is not currently supported.
