Yes I have seen multiple cDNA's rescued from a single two-hybrid positive.
This usually arises from yeast that are inadvertently carried over when you
pick your positives. It can also be related to your prey copy number - but
I think the proquest system is low copy. You can usually get around it by
re-streaking your positives back onto selective media and picking a single
colony from there. pPC86 carries the AMP marker (PNAS 89, pp.5789-5793) - I
expect pPC97 does as well.
