So I had a balance of 2 bitcoins that I took out from a pool.
Sent to my address via hash key.

Balance was 2.06943 whatever the # was.

I sent 2 coins to MT GOX, but the bitcoin.exe client froze/locked up and it was stuck on the send screen where you accept the fees.
I closed bitcoin, re-opened it. I sent my 2 bitcoins to MT GOX and it went through.

Right after the 2nd try, I see two of the same amounts to MT GOX both -2.01 to the same address.

One says 6/comfirmed which is good, other says 0/offline? which I'm hoping it caught the mistake and invalidated it.
However, now the 0/offline is back at 0/uncomfirmed, how do I get rid of that one? I think the system took a crap on me for my mistake.

Thanks.

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

It sounds to me like it did a double spend attempt.  The first one spend probably went through eventually, after it was included in a block.  Thus what you are seeing is your second attempt stuck at 0/unconfirmed.  It will never confirm because it has already been spent.

[Upate: I'm not sure how that database wouldn't know that the first transaction had been made.  Perhaps the database rolled back the transaction when it recovered after the crash?]

I don't think there is anything you can do about it other than send any coin balance to a new wallet and toss [Update: "archive" never toss, in case you receive payments to it] the old one.  (though once merge wallet is available that would be an option too: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=8091.0 ).

I may be wrong on all this, but from the info you provided this sounds plausible.

You should check block explorer also.  I would bet the unconfirmed spend was not included in any block there either.
