repeated conditions in sql queries

This is a minor question, mostly for curiosity: using rails 2.3, does
anybody else notice repeated conditions in sql queries?

consider the following app with two models linked through a join
table:

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :boxes_users
  has_many :boxes, :through => :boxes_users
end

class Box < ActiveRecord::Base
  named_scope :brown, :conditions => {:color => 'brown'}
end

class BoxesUser < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :box
  belongs_to :user
end

If I run this query:
>> User.find(1).boxes.brown

The following SQL is generated:

SELECT "boxes".* FROM "boxes" INNER JOIN "boxes_users" ON "boxes".id =
"boxes_users".box_id WHERE (("boxes_users".user_id = 1)) AND
(("boxes"."color" = 'brown') AND (("boxes_users".user_id = 1)))

Note that the ("boxes_users".user_id = 1) condition is repeated in the
sql query. Think does not impact the query results (though it does
makes parsing the development log a bit more tedious). Just curious
if anyone knows if this could potentially lead to less efficient
database queries in some circumstances, or have other secondary
effects?

Off the main topic for a second: if the join table needs a separate
model, change its name to something more descriptive. "BoxesUser" is
not a terribly descriptive name. "Assignment" or "BoxAssignment" might
be clearer.

If I run this query:
>> User.find(1).boxes.brown

The following SQL is generated:

SELECT "boxes".* FROM "boxes" INNER JOIN "boxes_users" ON "boxes".id =
"boxes_users".box_id WHERE (("boxes_users".user_id = 1)) AND
(("boxes"."color" = 'brown') AND (("boxes_users".user_id = 1)))

I doubt it. I would guess that the DB's query optimizer would notice
the duplicate condition right away and remove it.

Best,
