Permalink redirection fails due to conflict with attachments

Here is a tricky one. I am not 100% sure that this isn't design intent.
So I have changed my permalink structure change from /%category%/%postname%/ to /%postname%/
The redirection of the posts works fine for all posts except when the post contains a picture that has the same name as the post name.
For instance, if I have a post called "nice car" which is accessible through the category "car review" and that contains an attachment called "nice car" :
- before the migration, I can access the post through /car-review/nice-car/
- after the migration, if I access through /car-review/nice-car/, I get an empty post with the picture "nice-car" and I am not redirected to /nice-car/ post (new permalink structure).
The picture remains in fact accessible from any directory /toto/nice-car/, /titi/nice-car/, even if it doesn't exist. It isn't a big deal. The issue is rather that it is accesible through an url that will have priority over the redirection to the post because of this.
I understand that this is a special case ;)
