Only some assemblies fail to be loaded when assembly name does not match the file name



How to reproduce:
1. Open the attached project's "" Scene labeled "SampleScene"
2. In the Project Window, re-import the included DLL files
3. Wait for the re-import process to finish
4. Observe the Console Window
5. Rename Assemblies that didn't throw an error
6. Re-import the Assemblies again
7. Observe the Console Window

Expected result: Errors are thrown for all Assemblies that have mismatching names
Actual result: 'Assembly name does not match file name' error is thrown only for a single Assembly

    this is still happening in 2021.3.4f1.

    just upgraded from 2020.3.18 and this is blocking compilation in the editor.

    Updated unity from .9f to .13f and now my scripts can't find assemblies and types.
    Previously did work.

    Just want to comment that this issue is singlehandedly preventing me from using 2021.2, which has some features my project needs :(
    It's breaking because I'm using Firebase.

    Any updates on this? It's been a major blocker to adopting any new version since 2021.1.10f1.

    This is seriously waste my time. My editor code on cloud build was fail to run for week and I just found this was the root cause

    Instead of throwing error for all assemblies that have mismatching names, perhaps loosen the rules like it used to be? Or perhaps just makes it as a warming?

    What is the reason behind enforcing the naming rule?
