Has the similar bug been fixed as well?
I reported MT #3265 way back in 2009 where loading a modified or obsolete ROM set (with no missing files) via the command line works fine, but in the internal UI it results in MAME refusing to launch the game even if the exact same ROMs were actually running in the background.

"Missing" files and "incorrect" files are two completely different things and should be treated as such. Loading a matching file but with wrong checksums should not be a fatal error.

Back when I found the bug, it was when a certain driver (aristmk4.cpp) had the exact same filenames for every single ROM set, so simply renaming a zip file was sufficient to test other games using the same hardware without having to compile MAME every time on an ancient single core PC, which used to take over three hours on my old Celeron to do a clean compile of 0.140 or whatever it was back then.

Coincidentally, MT #3264 (reported by another user) was exactly the same thing but it was dismissed and closed simply because someone was unable to reproduce the bug, which would have only needed a matching filename with wrong checksums to reproduce.
