HPSIM_TYPE_1_simcms_0 Filter

I've been having an issue with servers that send duplicate events to my SIM CMS. For example, if I run

/etc/opt/resmon/lbin/send_test_event -v -a core_hw

On the server, then I will get two identical event types of "HP-UX WBEM core hardware event" show in SIM. I did a bit of research and found the cause. When I run:

/opt/wbem/bin/cimsub -ls -v

on a server with this issue, I see two subscription going back to my CMS:

-----------------------------------------
Namespace: root/cimv2
Filter: root/cimv2:HPSIM_simcms_0
Handler: root/cimv2:CIM_IndicationHandlerCIMXML.HPSIM_simcms
Query: "select * from HP_DeviceIndication"
Destination: https://172.00.000.00:50004/cimom/listen1
SubscriptionState: Enabled
-----------------------------------------
Namespace: root/cimv2
Filter: root/cimv2:HPSIM_TYPE_1_simcms_0
Handler: root/cimv2:CIM_ListenerDestinationCIMXML.HPSIM_TYPE_1_simcms_myserver.test.com
Query: "SELECT * FROM CIM_AlertIndication"
Destination: https://172.00.000.00:50004/cimom/listen1
SubscriptionState: Enabled
-----------------------------------------

The top one is created whenever I subscribe to WBEM indications from the CMS, so I know that one is valid. What in the world is the second one though? It has a filter of "root/cimv2:HPSIM_TYPE_1_simcms_0" If I disable it, then only one event is sent and all is well. So, that is the solution, I just don't understand where it came from. I can remove this subscription globally, perhaps it is from a previous install of SIM or something. Anyone ever see this?
