You will see that there are more repeated bokmarks. Every that you try delete o hide then appears more.

Dolphin bug: repeated bookmarks in Places panel
Thanks for the bug report.
Can you please provide the version numbers of KIO, Dolphin and kdelibs?

happens the same to me after updated to KDE 5.3
The bug importance should change to major, as each time Dolphin opens take more time to load and freeze while loading
I manually removed the duplicated bookmarks from
and as long I don't do any modification on places panel, doesn't appear any more duplicates.
but any operation on places panel like hide or delete or add, make appear duplicates again.
meanwhile, this helped me with the load when started.
I noticed now that when places panel is edited, XML of new site is saved in file
but when Dolphins opens read places data from
I managed to create my bookmarks manually on bookmarks.xml files and works fine.
Hopes that helps t find the root problem
Sorry, is the other way around
read when opens from
I can confirm this issue, but manually editing ".kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" only helps once. dolphin adds the four "Home", "Network", "Root", "Trash" entries on every start.
I have removed both "~/.local/share/user-places.xbel" and ".local/share/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" but this did not help.
When I started to edit the duplicates out of ".kde4/share/apps/kfileplaces/bookmarks.xml" it had almost 10k lines with dozens of duplicates of all sort of drives.
Note: I recently tried out KF 5.3, but moved back to KDE 4 (4.14.7, will update to 4.14.8 today.)
I can also confirm the bug. I could hardly use dolphin before i removed the bookmarks.xml file. I also removed ~/.kde/share/config/dolphinrc and ~/.kde/share/apps/dolphin, but it didn't help.
And I have exactly the same versions of kde, kio and kdelibs as Victor.
Update: After updating to 4.14.8 the issue disappeared for me.

This bug should be fixed with the following package versions:
* kde-baseapps >= 15.04.1
* kdelibs >= 4.14.8
* KIO >= 5.10 (if you have KF5 installed)
@Sven: Can you confirm it? :)
@Emmanuel: I have the following packages installed, and dolphin no longer duplicates the basic bookmarks:
So the updates of kdelibs from 4.14.7 to 4.14.8 seems to be the fix for the problem.
The bug has been fixed with the update to Plasma 5.3.1. Thanks to the devs.
