What's this then? The result is seen at least in BibleTime, and BT code 
does nothing for it. It's from SWMgr::augmentModules():

 // fix config's Section names to rename modules which are available 
more than once
                        // find out which sections are in both config 
                        // inserting all configs first is not good 
because that overwrites old keys and new modules would share the same config
                        for (SectionMap::iterator it = 
config->Sections.begin(); it != config->Sections.end(); ++it) {
                                if (saveConfig->Sections.find( 
(*it).first ) != saveConfig->Sections.end()) { //if the new section is 
already present rename it
                                        ConfigEntMap entMap((*it).second);

                                        SWBuf name;
                                        int i = 1;
                                        do { //module name already used?
name.setFormatted("%s_%d", (*it).first.c_str(), i);
                                        } while 
(config->Sections.find(name) != config->Sections.end());

config->Sections.insert(SectionMap::value_type(name, entMap) );
