EAC overwriting same-name tracks

I am currently ripping all of my cds to .flac using EAC. I get the CD information from the freedb database. Whenever there are two tracks with the same name on a cd, EAC automatically overwrites the previously burned track of same name, leaving me with only one of the two tracks.

I looked for a way to change this in the options menus; the box that says "ask before overwrite" is checked and everything. Does anyone have any clue about how to fix this problem?

Change how it names the files so it includes tracknumber aswell.
