Weirdness comparing strings

Hi,
I have this piece of code:

class Note():
      ...
      ...
     def has_the_same_name(self, note):
         return self == note

     def __str__(self):
         return self.note_name + accidentals[self.accidentals]

     __repr__ = __str__

 if __name__  == '__main__':
     n = Note('B')
     n2 = Note('B')
     print n
     print n2
     print n.has_the_same_name(n2)

I'd expect to get "True", because their string representation is
actually the same, instead the output is:

B
B
False

I think I'm missing something stupid. Where am I wrong?
