Obviously missed the notification on this one but just noticed that I have been charged by ebay for selling then again by Paypal for the transaction - when did that start?

Always been the same you can save some fee's by listing on Free Listing Days if you get the invitations that does save you 35p a listing well worth having.

PayPal have always charged to use their service, something like 5%?

Three charges usually:

Listing fee by ebay (unless you get free listings)
Final valuation fee (including postage) by ebay
Paypal fees on the transaction.

yes paypal take the fees at source, eBay send an invoice for their fees. It has always been like this.
