It is in fact "looked at" again (at least in my 0.24.1 system). You get
a message stating that it's found an entry with the same hash, but
different name and updates the database entry to reflect the new file name.
There's commentary in the Wiki that states "The location of any video
content will be updated automatically based off a matching hash, with no
loss of metadata, next time a /*Scan For Changes*/ is triggered from the
/*Watch Videos*/ menu."
What also happens though is that it also seems to flip-flop between the
two names (assuming there's tow duplicate entries) each time you rescan.
Raymond Wagner produced a script to remove duplicates blindly from the
database so that there was only 1 unique entry.
You can also run mythfrontend and save the output to a file then look
through it for the duplicate messages and sort them out manually, giving
you the opportunity to resolve the problems a little cleaner.
