fileFieldElement uses old files if duplicate filenames are used

Reported by: work@… Owned by: work@…
Priority: major Milestone: Should have

When uploading a file with a duplicate filename of one that was previously uploaded, the fileFieldElement appends a number (e.g. _1 or _2) to make sure it is unique. However in the front-end the original filename (e.g. without _1 or _2) is used. This means that, while it is possible to upload a new file with an identical filename, you will not see the changes as the old file is used.


1. upload: test.xls --> test.xls
2. change test.xls and append some rows
3. upload the updated test.xls --> test.xls_1
4. the original test.xls file is used instead of the test.xls_1

While I understand your current position, I am not really in the mood of bugfixing your bugs... I have enough work on my own plate... Better discuss this with your superior...
