Shotwell should absolutely distinguish these as two different images.
If you're missing files with duplicate names, that would seem to be a
bug. Try running Shotwell with an empty library (e.g. 'shotwell -d
foo') and importing two separate photos from your camera that happen to
have the same name. Does Shotwell think they are duplicates?
