bug#11260: 24.1.50; `holiday-sexp' may create entry twice

the following happens also in Emacs 23.  Recipe:

1. emacs -Q
2. M-x calendar RET
3. evaluate: (require 'holidays)
4. evaluate:
      '(list 4 17 2012)
      "April 17th 2012"))

5. In the calendar, move point to April 17th 2012 and hit h.

You'll see that "April 17th 2012" appears twice.

I've debugged this.

`calendar-holiday-list' indeed returns two entries for this date.

The bug is in `holiday-sexp':

| (defun holiday-sexp (sexp string)
|   "Sexp holiday for dates in the calendar window.
| SEXP is an expression in variable `year' that is evaluated to
| give `date'.  STRING is an expression in `date' that evaluates to
| the holiday description of `date'.  If `date' is visible in the
| calendar window, the holiday STRING is on that date.  If date is
| nil, or if the date is not visible, there is no holiday."
|   (let ((m displayed-month)
|         (y displayed-year)
|         year date)
|     (calendar-increment-month m y -1)
|     (holiday-filter-visible-calendar
|      (list
|       (progn
|         (setq year y
|               date (eval sexp))
|         (list date (if date (eval string))))
|       (progn
|         (setq year (1+ y)
|               date (eval sexp))  ;; <------------------------------- 
|         (list date (if date (eval string))))))))

At the marked position, there is no check if `date' is in the
incremented year.

I see two possible fixes:

1.  Add such a check, and set date to nil when it fails.

2.  Add to the doc of `holiday-sexp' that a given sexp _must_ return
    either nil or a date which is in the year equal to the value of

I would prefer 1., because I don't see the need for such a
restriction.  But I'm not really familiar with calendar stuff.
