No, they are the same. I just got myself backwards when thinking about what was causing the bug and put "shortest" when "a longer" was correct. This most commonly shows up with footnotes because you'll have files like note1.html, note2.html, ..., note44.html. ConvertLIT internally has a list of filename IDs which are usually the filename without the extension (note1, ..., note44). To fix-up the link it searches through this list, but does so in a way which doesn't distinguish between a full match and an initial substring match. So if it's looking for 'note1' and it finds 'note14' first, then it'll link to 'note14.html' instead of 'note1.html'.

Sorry for the confusion, but the good news is that in the future you can use calibre with 'lit2oeb' and not need fix things up by hand . If you try 'lit2oeb' and footnote links still aren't correct, please file a bug on the calibre trac so that it can be fixed.

Hope this helps,
