It depends on the contest rules.  In many contests it is suggested that
single-band entries can work stations on other bands (for fun and to
give points and/or multipliers to other contestants) and to enter the
log for the other bands as a check-log.  In CQWW I know that it is
possible to enter in more than one single-band category (I checked with
K3EST to be sure), so in the 1997 CQWW-CW I entered 15M single-band and
40M single-band from VP5EA.  However, the rules for CQWW require that
you cannot use your operation on other bands to enhance your single-band
score; in other words, you cannot move people from one band to another,
or make skeds, etc.  to help your single-band score.

In your case, you entered as a 15M Single-Band, and also as all-band.
Wouldn't this make the 15M contacts count for two different entries?
This seems a little unusual, but again I would think it would depend on
how the rules are written.  If the rules don't mention multiple entries
then I suppose it would be up to the sponsors of the contest to decide.
