I use mySQL 5.6 running on a Windows server. I do not have this issue. The only way LC will add a record is with the insert command. I suspect there is someplace in your code where you expect to update, and it's inserting instead. 

I wrap my database commands in a series of commands and functions, all of which put the current user name (I have a login system in place) and the datetime the update was made. Something like that might help you determine when the updates were made.
