iTunes misfeature (not reported)

Today I picked up a couple of CDs in the second-hand store to backfill some music I'd borrowed off others and liked sufficiently to merit a purchase. For both CDs, iTunes informed me that importing them would clash with some existing music; would I care to replace the clashing titles? Indeed I would, this being sort of the point of the exercise.

iTunes then proceeded to populate the relevant directory with a full duplicate of the CDs ripped.

Apparently it means "replace the iTunes listing for" as opposed to "overwrite the existing file".

Do you have the "Keep iTunes Music folder organized" setting checked (under Advanced)? When i've ripped CDs of media i already had, it overwrites the files. I think.
