But the name is not the same: the extensions of the files are
different.  So I don't think it's unreasonable to expect this to work.

It would help if you report the steps necessary to reproduce the
problem, starting with "emacs -Q".  If that requires a non-empty
phrase file, please post a minimal file that can be used to reproduce
the crash.

Thanks for the other info.
