Different results with println and add to list  RSS feed

I dont really understand whats going on here...

I am accessing User permissions from the server, and looping through the subcategories...
when I println the variable I get the exact result Im looking for, but when I add each instance of the variable to a list; the list doesn't give the same result.

also I am using a break; to jump out of the loop because it was printing the last line twice and I didn't know why?

here is a bit of the code...

This is how I want the permissions to be output

if I print the list inside the loop I get this...
where they are numbered 11111
I understand that the output is repeated...its printing the first then first & second
and so on...but there is a straggling bit of code at the end?

If I print the list outside of the loop, all I get is the straggler?

I have a few more questions regarding this same project
(but I'll pace myself...this is my first real java project, and I am running in to a lot of (at least seemingly) anomalous results)
any help would be greatly appreciated.
