Google and other SE's will try to figure out if there are duplicate URL issues, your step of using google tools removes an element of doubt for Googlebot. The bots/filters are fairly smart and will come across this kind of duplication often.
One of the main reasons to remove doubt/duplicate URLs/content is for links coming in which'll increase the prominence of your pages. It's generally better all round to not have duplicate URLs pointing to the same resource.
