I haven't looked at the relevant code to verify this, but it doesn't appear that sickrage uses the actual NZB for identifying a given NZB, but rather the "NZB name" (Is that the "title", "guid", ...,?), which could and apparently does vary from indexer to indexer. When using custom newznab indexers, the same failed NZB seems to be retried again and again, once for each indexer. I would think this wouldn't happen if a hash of the NZB was used to identify the failed NZB. (Although, I suppose it's possible the otherwise identical NZB (point to same posts) varies slightly from indexer to indexer as well?)

You'd probably need to look at the part id's, a hash of the nzb itself wouldn't necessarily match even if the contents were the same...
it /should/, but it depends on if the nzb generator adds any crap, whitespace differences, etc..
