I'm sorry about this.  I added functionality to detect ambiguous keys,
but my implementation was faulty.  Given how invasive this change is,
I've reverted it in git and will resume work on it once we start
development on the 2.3 branch (sometime in the first quarter of 2016).

Nevertheless, thanks for the report!
