It's not so much that two different names appear, and not overwrite one 
another. But for each relation you get multiple labels along the route. 
I'm getting very few labels on a particular route.

You can see my example here, where I've got the Cumbria Way.


I get 3 labels over the whole length. One near Carlisle, one between 
Skiddaw House and Mosedale, and another the other side of Coniston. Now 
this as it happens is using my own table imported from a shapefile.

However, the effect is the same when I do use the osm tables (I haven't 
made it live yet). I tried pulling out snippets of your ldpnwn specif 
code putting them into mine. But I still get only a few labels rendered. 
My stylesheet for rendering ldpnwn is similar to yours. So I'm kind of 
confused as to where the magic is that places multiple labels instead of 
just a few?
