Looking a bit into this, it seems that the decision about whether a
figure is already loaded is made in core-fig.tex, in

   \or % no message

The "no message" comment suggests that when \figurestatus isn't set,
the message shown is figures8, which is

         8: figureobject -- is reused

But I couldn't figure out who sets \figurestatus and where the
judgement of 'already loaded' is made.  The comment at the beginning
of the above \def ("this whole mess needs a clean up anyway") scared
me away :-)
