 My Remote Desktop Licensing Manager is showing more than one device CAL being given out for one dev and the temp lics are not being cleaned up (I am seeing October expirations still there).

  The duplicates are using a CAL's and preventing users from getting in.  I also fell the temp licesne issue is a symptom of a bigger problem too.

This expiration period, which is not configurable, is a random number of days between 52 to 89 days after the license is issued. When a client connects to a terminal server, the expiration date for the CAL is checked. If the expiration is set to occur within seven days, the terminal server connects to the license server and renews the CAL. During this time, the CAL is given another expiration period of 52 to 89 days. If the license server is not available, the terminal server attempts to replace the CAL each time the client logs on to a terminal server session. After the CAL expires, the license server returns any CAL that was not renewed to the group of available CALs.

Thanks for the comment trythisone, but this is not my issue.  I am really looking for an answer that addresses the duplicates in the permanent licenses.  I revoked the dups to get them back, but that is going be impossible to do soon, since there is a 20% revoke limit.

This can happen in situations such as deleting the MSLicensing registry key.  The duplicates will eventually fall off, but it will take 52 to 89 days.
