It's the nature of the software.  Amazon's does that as well.  People get all bent out of shape about it.  Just delete it or say NI for it.

I think part of it has to do with the system's method of "recognizing" books.  I'm pretty sure the system identifies books by individual ISBNs, and not title, so a title with multiple ISBNs will come up for every listing with which you haven't already associated yourself.
