No, the shortnames must only be unique in the directory. Remember that a dir can have files called a.big.file and a.bigextension. How do you give those shortnames the same extension as their longname?

Short names are only ever seen in older operating systems that don't support long names. Such old systems don't support USB either, so it's not an issue for Rockbox.

Good question. Probably just an old version that was renamed.
