And that explains how to avoid it. Fixed locally by altering
This now becomes a wishlist item, something to the effect of

random-looking behavior for very short filenames". Possibly just
avoiding automatic detection for such files would work, or
constraining the fuzzy-match more as the filename gets shorter.
