That's because one 'BB' is actually two big-blinds on pokertracker (and HEM amiright?) but I don't know the historical reasons for this, something to do with limit holdem I think.
You're right, it is to do with limit poker. In this instance it stands for Big Bet as opposed to Big Blind, because in Limit the bet is usually equal to 1 big blind pre-flop and after the flop, but after the Turn and River it is double or 1 Big Bet
So a BB (Big Bet) is 2 bb (big blinds)
Some people will use Big Bet /100, some will use Big Blinds /100, but as Arjonius said, not everyone will stick to the normal abbreviations of BB/100 and bb/100
