I don't see how the two things are related. The breaker still limits the current to its rating - it doesn't care how many paths the current takes.

I suspect overheating as a result of a loose connection, just as you'd get with a single wire.

Sorry Douglas, I was only using those to direct your eye toward the scorched area.

The "Is that why?" refers to what can happen with two wires under the same screw.
