CsvBulkLoader with retaining dataobject ID

Go to End

I have extended the CsvBulkLoader to import csv but am having an issue with regards to retaining the original ID of the dataobject imported.

The csv to import has a column "ReferenceID" but when I provide the following column map:

public $columnMap = array(
    'ReferenceID' => 'ID',

The import creates 2 entries instead of 1 per row of csv, with some data attached to the first entry and other data attached to the 2nd entry (with the correct retained ID)

How should I proceed to implement the loader with retain of the object ID?
