sorry for the late reply, but I am swamped with work. More inline.

I tried to duplicate the problem here with 4.6.3/master. I am unable to do so. 
Here's what I do:

a) have a bunch of cleared transactions.
b) duplicate the last transaction
c) reconcile the account (ending balance is actually wrong)
d) finish reconciliation
e) remove the duplicated transaction
f) start reconciliation again

f) shows me the correct (w/o the duplicate transaction) starting balance. I 
have no idea if this matches your scenario or not or if we have fixed 
something in between 4.6.1 to 4.6.3 in that area. Looking at the ChangeLog 
might give you a hint. Maybe another user/dev remembers s.th.

Not really an advice (yet) but we will get there.
