Hello all,

after updating to MMA 3.0 (Unix) I have some really stupid questions:

1a) I evaluate a cell, let's say 
    a=2 (SHIFT-RETURN)
    then this line gets a number e.g. In[1] :=
    Now, I go back, and change a to b, so it reads
    b=2 (SHIFT-RETURN)
    Now the number increases (here: In[2] := ). I checked for the
    Options Inspector/Cell Options/Evaluation Options/
    CellEvaluationDuplicate is set to "False"

    So why is the cell duplicated anyway, and how can I stop this ?

1b) somehow connected to question 1a)
    Now I save the modified notebook, that only contains one line saying
    I quit MMA, come back, load this notebook, evaluate it and ask for
    the value of a.
    You guessed it ? I get 2 ! So somewhere inside the notebook,  
    invisible for me, this information is still stored.

So could anyone please help me ! I browsed the online help, but ...

Thank you very much,
