Thanks for the leads, folks. I cited this in my review of Chessbase 13. It was just reprinted at chessbase.com:

Try the FICS database. It contains millions of games played by players of all levels, and I do mean all levels.

I'm not sure what you are looking after, but getting a double filled db is easy. Do it yourself! Take a copy of games and paste them back into the db. At least it's possible with CB11.

When I was using Opening Master I noticed a lot of ugly engine games and a ton of doubles. Perhaps that will suit your purposes?

I'm looking (for testing purposes only) for the biggest, most double filled database around. .pgn or Chessbase are both fine. Any candidates?
