Like this?

    $ cat /tmp/mh_profile
    Path: .Mail
    Path: .Mail

    $ MH=/tmp/mh_profile folder -f
    folder: multiple "Path" profile components in /tmp/mh_profile, ignoring 
".Mail", continuing...

That's one the additions to 1.6:

    - All nmh programs will now warn about multiple profile entries
      for the same non-null, non-comment component.  In previous
      versions, all but the first were silently ignored.

I would resist changing that from an admonish to an abort, at
least without a proper notification cycle, because that could
break existing profiles.
