You should not be charged again, assuming you're signed into the Mac App Store using the same account under which you purchased the app initially. Due to recent security issues and identify theft (mostly due to phishing scams), the iTunes/Mac App Store seems to be requiring more frequent verification of credit card information when a card is registered in your account, even though you're re-downloading a previous purchase. Just go through the verification process and you should be fine.
Should by some error you find that you are charged twice, You can contact Mac App Store Customer Service and let them know about the problem and they should issue a refund.
Thanks for your reply. I did try re-downloading the program after deleting the original, and then checked my purchase invoices (history) as listed in iTunes. Indeed you are correct. Next to the problem app is the price of "Free", so I was not charged again for re-downloading the app I had already paid for. Thanks again for your help!
Now the next problem to tackle is getting this new purchase to run properly (which it still does not), but that's an entirely different issue.
