That is incorrect:

1. I compare 2 files. They are the same.
2. The code in question is

  for (cnt = 0; __gconv_path_elem[cnt].name != NULL; ++cnt)
      char real_elem[__gconv_max_path_elem_len + sizeof (gconv_conf_filename)];

      if (__realpath (__gconv_path_elem[cnt].name, real_elem) != NULL)
          size_t elem_len = strlen (real_elem);
          char *filename;

          filename = alloca (elem_len + 1 + sizeof (gconv_conf_filename));
          __mempcpy (__mempcpy (__mempcpy (filename, real_elem, elem_len),
                                "/", 1),
                     gconv_conf_filename, sizeof (gconv_conf_filename));

          /* Read the next configuration file.  */
          read_conf_file (filename, real_elem, elem_len, &modules, &nmodules);

I didn't see anything which said stop if a module was found. It will
just read all config files it can find regardless their contents.
