It shouldn't make a difference how many databases there are.

Are you sure the client_id values are completely identical byte for
byte?  No whitespace differences, nor differences in how accents are
encoded, etc.

If there really are exactly identical, a testcase would be useful.
Ideally self-contained and small enough to copy around easily.
