[PySide] image file with certain file name won't compile via pyside-rcc

Hi guys,

I have been seeing this issue for ages now and finally decided to try 
and fix it, however, even after writing a tiny little test case I still 
cannot get to the bottom of this, so I am hoping you guys can help:
pyside-rc refuses to compile an image file with a certain name and I 
don't know why.
Here is the simple test case that reproduces the issue (all required 
files are in the attached zip file):

I have a few icons like this:

I need to compile these icons into a resource module, so I have created 
a resource.qrc file on the same level as the "icons" directory which 
looks like this:

I then compile the resource file with this command line:
pyside-rcc -o resources.py resources.qrc

To test the contents of the resource file I run the following test code 
("qiteratorTest.py" in the zip):

from PySide import QtCore
import sys
import resources

it = QtCore.QDirIterator(':/icons',filter=QtCore.QDir.Files, 
while it.hasNext():
     info = it.fileInfo()
     print '{} exists: {}'.format(info.baseName(), info.exists())

The result is this:

      exists: False
    presets exists: True
    other exists: True

No matter what I do, I cannot get pyside to compile the file called 
To make matters more interesting, I duplicated the same file and renamed 
it to the above file names ("other.svg", "particles.svg" and 
"presets.svg"). But I still get the same result, so it's clearly not 
related to the file itself, but it's name.

I have been struggling with this problem for ages now. If anybody has 
any ideas, I would be very, very grateful!
