Summary14863: Extending core theme using the same core theme name

It is possible to extend the core theme and use the same core theme name. Once done, I get multiple duplicates (see screenshot).

I can set up different settings for each core theme.

However, there is only one core theme displayed in the survey theme dropdown list (inside the survey).

Steps To Reproduce

Extend any core theme and use the same theme name.

Additional Information

If you try to extend one of the core themes once more, you will not be allowed, getting the error message that should also be shown in the first case: "Directory with the name vanilla already exists; choose another name"

Apparently, simply resetting the theme makes the duplicated themes not to be displayed any longer.
