Multiple entries with same title and same year are displayed as duplicates

Hi,

thanks for this great service. There seems to be a small bug. When you have two entries with the same title and the same year, both entries are shown with identical data.
Example:
@techreport{TechReport1
author = {John McBug},
institution = {ACME},
title = {DemoPaper: A Title about nothing},
year = {2012},
}

@article{Article1
author = {John McBug},
journal = {Another Journal},
title = {DemoPaper: A Title about nothing},
YEAR = {2012},
}

This will show the entry "DemoPaper: A Title about nothing. McBug, J. Another Journal, . 2012." twice, instead of showing the data of the techreport in the first entry. We are using bibbase at our university chair where it is sometimes the case that a paper is submitted as technical report and then later submitted as an article with the same name.

A quick workaround for this is to make the titles different, for example by replacing one space in the title by a nbsp;

Regards
Joachim

I have the same problem -- and it cost me about 2 hours of checking untl I figured out the problem! (I.e., until I found out which of my publications was not showing). So I am also interested in having this fixed.


Another reason why that problem appears in practice: Very often one gives a paper to a *workshop* to get additional feedback. Sometimes, depending on the timing, one gets the approved version (but with the same title) accepted at a conference in the same year!

This happened to me. The papers are only sligthly different, but the order of the authors got changed. Yet, only one of them is listed (the workshop, not the conference).

Please fix! :)

This bug has finally been fixed.

@techreport{TechReport1,
author = {John McBug},
institution = {ACME},
title = {DemoPaper: A Title about nothing},
year = {2012}
}

@article{Article1,
author = {John McBug},
journal = {Another Journal},
title = {DemoPaper: A Title about nothing},
YEAR = {2012}
}

will now show as:

Prof. Chaos: please let me know if you still see the problem and if so, please send me the bibtex to reproduce it.


Thanks for your patience!

Works now, thank you a lot!
