react-native-router-flux warning: Key is already defined

The following is the Android log output when the React Native app is started for a while before disconnecting it from the Meteor (DDP) server by killing the Meteor server.

Using console.log("<App /> render") to indicate when the render function of App component is called, it appears that whenever the render function is called again after createContainer passes it some new props, the Key is already defined error is triggered.

What's causing this error/warning and how can we fix it? The app still runs fine, but something is definitely wrong here.

react-native-router-flux warning: Key is already defined

In my experience the warnings do not cause any problems, but just in case, I usually define a shouldComponentUpdate method that returns false if the props/state have not changed in a way that would require the route to change (note that I use redux and redux persist to decide what is the initial scene, and so I need to connect the component to redux in order to get the required information via props, but later if the data in the store changes, I can safely block additional renders).

That is just my approach based on my experience and needs. The router-flux guys have a slightly 'stricter' approach to this, that you can see in their docs
