Thank you Jim, It has only happened a couple of times in the mail & i just
plant them anyway. but have never noticed the result.

I have also seen the two roots occasionally & even had one with 3 roots, it
was quite an interesting tangle & it produced 3 leaves, but the weakest one
wilted away quite quickly & the other two continued to grow : )

Mostly, once the first root coming out of a Crinum seed is broken, that's
the end for that seed.  Very rarely, I've seen crinum seeds with two
shoots, and I believe (but have not dissected to see) that this is because
there were two embryos in that seed.
