I was pdflatexing a document named "One_Way.tex" just now. In the
document, I have a figure named "one_way.jpg". The compilation failed
numerous times (log attached below) and I thought the figure file was
corrupted so also I re-made tons of times a new figure file but still
in vain.

Finally, I changed the name of the figure file to something else and
it worked immediately. Is there a rule that the figure file can't be
of the same name as the document?
