You can try running with trial --debug (possibly also --nopm). This will
cause Deferred debugging to be enabled, which will cause the call site of
each Deferred's creation to be saved. Then you can inspect this to learn
which Deferred is being called back multiple times. Once you learn this,
further debugging approaches may become apparent (like looking at all the
call sites which can call back a Deferred created there, and figuring out
how more than one of them can be executed).
