Redis - Consider renaming one of the beans or enabling overriding by setting spring.main.allow-bean-definition-overriding=true

I am developing Spring Boot + Spring Data Redis example. In this example, I'm developing the code for the RedisMessageListenerContainer and define the corresponding bean here.

Now when I run the application I get the below error. Could someone guide me what is the issue ?

***************************
APPLICATION FAILED TO START
***************************

Description:

The bean 'redisMessageListenerContainer', defined in class path resource [org/springframework/boot/autoconfigure/session/RedisSessionConfiguration$SpringBootRedisHttpSessionConfiguration.class], could not be registered. A bean with that name has already been defined in com.example.RedisApplication and overriding is disabled.

Action:

Consider renaming one of the beans or enabling overriding by setting spring.main.allow-bean-definition-overriding=true

RedisApplication.java

    private ApplicationRunner titleRunner(String title, ApplicationRunner rr) {
        return args -> {
            log.info(title.toUpperCase() + ":");
            rr.run(args);
        };
    }

            geo.add("Sicily", new Point(13.361389, 38.155556), "Arigento");
            geo.add("Ramesh", new Point(15.087269, 37.502669), "Catania");

    I am not sure if it's a bug, but if you give any name other than redisMessageListenerContainer i.e Spring will consider bean name, then it works fine.

    @Bean
        RedisMessageListenerContainer listener(RedisConnectionFactory rcf) {
            MessageListener ml = (message, pattern) -> {
                String str = new String(message.getBody());
                log.info("message from ' " + TOPIC + "':'" + str);
            };
    
            RedisMessageListenerContainer mlc = new RedisMessageListenerContainer();
            mlc.setConnectionFactory(rcf);
            mlc.addMessageListener(ml, new PatternTopic(TOPIC));
            return mlc;
        }
