Yes, because the environment file is read twice, you need a guard against redefining the redefinition. Placing a guard around it, like this, should work:

\expandafter\ifx\csname normalinmargin \endcsname  \relax \else
\let\normalinmargin\inmargin
\def\inmargin#1{{\parindent0pt \normalinmargin{#1}}}
\fi

(yes, that is an ugly hack, but it is one I can write withour actually having to test it before sending :))
