I agree, that was confusing. You are quite right, the holdings
information (all of the information specific to each copy of a title, such
as barcode, date aquired, etc) goes into a holdings tag. 852 is very
common in MARC21, though you can define your own holdings tag, as long as
the tag number starts with "9" (like "952"). This tag gets repeated in
the MARC record -- once for each copy owned.

You are allowed to have multiple 952 tags, of course (one for each copy).
But I assume you are looking at _two_ 952 tags for each copy?
Seems like someone else had this problem before. Does anyone remember
that thread? What was the solution?

Could you go to bugs.koha.org and submit a bug report on this?
