[Rd] vignettes with similar names

In R 3.0.2 Patched (2014-01-31 r64905) and 3.0.3 beta (2014-02-25
r65077) I see a problem loading vignettes when I create a package with
two vignettes with similar names, e.g.


These seem not to be distinguished, and I get this

vignette ‘vignette3’ not found

Warning message:
vignette ‘vignette3-install’ found more than once,
using the one found in ‘.’

This was not an issue in 2.15.3, and it works correctly in R-dev
(2014-02-17 r65021).

Cheers, Mike.
