No, it's just a coincidence. It would only be a bug if it never happens.

can you fix this ?

I'm kind of busy working on my time travel machine but fixing the law of random numbers is next on my list. In the mean time, please read the Background section for the Card Shuffling Simulator here:

Just for my own amusement, I used the card shuffling simulator (linked above) and generated 1 mission shuffles. I then wrote a little routine that counted the number of pairs dealt in each hand. Output looked like this for a 10-handed table:

Players: 10

Hands: 1000000

0 pairs: 546820

1 pairs: 338673

2 pairs: 95953

3 pairs: 16443

4 pairs: 1964

5 pairs: 142

6 pairs: 5

7 pairs: 0

8 pairs: 0

9 pairs: 0

10 pairs: 0

So the odds of at least 3 players getting dealt pocket pairs is about 1.86% (16443+1964+142+5 / 1000000), or about 1 in every 54 hands.
