Yeah, bug or not, it's definitely not desirable behaviour.

However, solving it in a comprehensive way doesn't seem obvious - we
could return an error when there are multiple hash matches, or perhaps
default to the most recent patch. But both of these are a little
imprescice, will this be okay for your usage?
