No. This is why I said you need to add 'mem' and 'snoop' sort keys into
the c2c tool. This is not how sort works IMHO - if you need to make
samples unique let the sort key(s) distinguish them somehow, or you can
combine same samples (in terms of sort kes) and use the combined entry's
stat.nr_events and stat.period or weight.
