[typo] MarsEdit and Typo problem

Hi all,

I'm using the latest version of MarsEdit (2.0.4) with the latest  
version of Typo (4.1.1). Everything is working fine except when I edit  
a post. Let's say I create a post and assign it to the Mac OS X  
category. That part works fine. I go to my blog and the category list  
in the sidebar shows the category and the number of posts in that  
category. Now if I edit my post in MarsEdit and then go back to my  
blog, the number of posts will increase by one and clicking on the  
category displays the edited article twice. Every time I edit the post  
the count increases and the number of times it displays in the  
category section increases. The home page display is fine.

After digging around a bit, I discovered that the problem seems to  
center around the categorizations table in the Typo DB, which maps  
categories to articles (i.e. posts). Every time I edit a post, a new  
entry is added to the categorizations table for that post (with the  
exact same category id) instead of just updating the entry. So the  
query that gets the post count for each category, and the query that  
gets the posts in a certain category is grabbing the post multiple  
times (once for each time it appears in the categorizations table with  
same category id).

I'm not sure if this a problem with MarsEdit or Typo. The MarsEdit  
developer suggested I ask for help here. The Typo documentation says  
it works with MarsEdit if you select Moveable Type as the weblog type,  
which I did. Any help or insight would be appreciated.
