Try using wild-cards, or completion and you will see. But I guess
that is bash, rather than the file system itself.

If there is a problem on GNU/Linux, and I'm not convinced that there
is, it could easily be solved by a test that combined both inode and
file-name information. The same edge cases that we have with new files
on MS-Windows and with dodgy NFS servers still apply though, and these
are difficult to solve.
