When you produce your output from Camtasia, if you use Custom Production Settings one of the options is to have "Burned in" captions. If that option is enabled, the captions are produce along with the video and are always visible because they are actually part of the video file.

Once you upload to YouTube, you can also supply a separate caption file. What appears to have happened in this case is that the video itself has "burned in" captions and a separate captions file was also included with YouTube. Hence the double vision. But only if the YouTube CC is showing. ;)
