This bug also affects me. Sometimes it happens in the GNOME Shell
search. I suppose that duplicate happens when the content loads slowly
and autocompletion is unable to finish immediately. Both X and Wayland
sessions are affected.

gnome-software search bar duplicates letters while typing
Status in GNOME Software:
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
When entering text into the search bar at the top of the gnome-
software application, the letters typed are doubled. In other words,
if you enter, say, the letter "R", it the search bar will now contain
"RR". Also, sometimes hitting the left arrow key in the search bar
will delete both letters that were entered. Backspace does the same.
The only way to get rid of the double letters is to try to navigate to
the second letter and hit the delete key. Sometimes even that
solution is inconsistent.
This was tested on Ubuntu MATE 16.04 Beta 1.
