Why does "Import Name Conflict" dialog pop up?

I'm trying to import some ACIS files via MaxScript.

files = getFiles inputfolder
for f in files do
(
importFile f #noPrompt
)

The five files all have different names.

D5CE3U_AFUFU_002.sat
D5CE3U_AFUFU_005.sat
D5CE3U_AFUFU_006.sat
D5CE3U_AFUFU_030.sat
D5CE3U_AFUFU_036.sat

Why then does 3DS MAX think there is a name conflict?

I don't actually get an error... just the import name conflict dialog and a suggested new name.

This happens four times for the five files I'm trying to import.

probably because the objects have the same name in all 5 files.
check 'autorename all'
