My answer is similar to Sander's

There are lots of ways this can happen;
If your editing lasts more than 120 minutes, unless you relock it, your 
square is automatically released and another mapper could select it,
If one of you is using  JOSM or another offline editor, at the time of 
downloading the others buildings may not have been present, allowing you 
to each trace the same area then upload,
someone loses sight of where the square border is, and maps part of your 
someone is not using th TM, and is editing the area,
occasionally Tasks can overlap (very rarely), so someone using an older 
task is mapping the same area as the newer task.

There are probably more possibilities I hadn't even thought of - Tasking 
Manager is pretty good at making sure this doesn't happen, but then us 
pesky humans get involved!
