Severity can be reduced. The duplication seems to be only temporary.
After a second travel the duplicates have vanished.

Also checked companion list.
The duplicate companions are only an optical illusion.
The companion list shows no duplicates.

After first travel, when duplicates appeared.
If you then walk away (not travel) oddities can happen though:
-companions teleporting away, reappearing
-spontaneous change from walk to crawl (because of invisible companion ?)
-companions disappear finally (empty companion list)
And follow-up oddities after returning to tavern,
like swordsdwarf being an odd mixture between companion and foreigner.

This report about duplication sounds like a duplicate report of 0008932, "My companion cloned herself after fast travel" which in turn was closed as a duplicate in favour of 0005106, "Bandits/companions respawn/duplicate in their original location".

8932/5106 happened to me too in earlier versions.
Had a different feel back then.
Note, that this report is for version 0.42.03
