From a tiger run on my box (vanilla Debian Etch):

--WARN-- [inet003w] The port for service postgres is also assigned to service
         postgresql.
--WARN-- [inet003w] The port for service postgres is also assigned to service
         postgresql.
--WARN-- [inet003w] The port for service sane is also assigned to service
         sane-port.

I only have only one line for each of the offending services (for postgres, each one line for tcp and udp). Obviously check_services chokes on the fact that the string 'postgresql' contains the string 'postgres', and 'sane-port' contains 'sane'.
Interestingly enough, the second alias for 'sane-port', 'saned', doesn't trigger this error.
