You might have sorted out your issue already, but if not, then if I were 
you I'd use a disk editor (I remember having used Norton's DiskEdit in 
the distant past for similar needs), and change the name of one of the 
files with it.

Note: Two files with the same name are totally possible. In fact, it 
happens much often than you think: every time you delete two files that 
differ only by the first name, your filesystem ends up with two 
'identical' filenames (since deletion is replacing the first character 
of a filename by a special glyph).
