If you don't remember this scene, it's just after Morpheus says, "Are you listening to me, Neo, or were you looking at the girl in the red dress?"
The training simulator here is paused so that Neo (and the audience) can see what Agent Smith looks like. And suddenly I noticed the two guys I've labeled "A". Those are different images of the same guy. So I started looking, and saw a couple more, which I've labeled. I think I've spotted others but they're less sure than those three.
This probably was deliberate. While it made production a bit simpler by cutting down the number of extras they needed, it also makes sense in in story terms, by cutting down the number of distinct "person" lattices they would need in the training simulator.
Pixy: this is the error I've gotten four times tonight:

I'm working on a patch to fix the lost MySQL connections; I'll see if I can get that in place today.
Minx is supposed to automatically repair failed connections, but there's an issue with doing that in the session handler. Instead of fixing itself, it drops dead, leaving a broken connection in the pool to trip up the next user who gets handed that thread. It's now my number one bug.

"Numerous sets of identical twins were cast as extras in the "Woman in Red" scene - in which Morpheus takes Neo through a computer simulation of The Matrix - to create the illusion of a repeating program. Example: the tall man with slicked-back hair and sunglasses in the opening shot is seen seconds later as a police officer writing a parking ticket."
I remembered hearing about it at the time, and how they specifically put it in there so that people would notice.
