PSE12 has introduced the sort by filename in all views including thumbnail view. One of the consequences is that files with duplicate filenames will be shown side by side in the browsing space.
I think it should be possible to use that feature to extract 'possible duplicates' from the database. Adding such an option in the 'Find by detail menu' would be great. That would provide an additional way to find duplicates to the present search by visual similarity.
... and a search by file name followed by a check for visual similarity should be very effective.

I agree with you, visual search doesn't work good at all!! I've imported a picture twice and checked to see if elements could find the duplicate, it didn't! It says that those two are "unique pictures".
