I know about this bug. This is a big problem across the keymap
directory - the unique names in all tree. For me this is the biggest

Now I don't want to begin global renaming because it won't solve the
main problem.

I'm currently working on a very large changes in a separate branch. I
hope that these changes will finally resolve this issue and some others.

This release is made to push new utilities and new keymaps and to fix
bugs in the previous release.
