It was fine before your last change.  Now it spews just as many
messages as without repeat detection.  It makes log files horrible to
read if there are many repeated messages.

Printing the increasing counter with \r might be acceptable on a
terminal (although it makes the next non-repeated message unreadable
if it is shorter), but not otherwise.
