Description Dan Jacobson 2007-08-22 12:50:00 UTC
Gentlemen, can you believe Special:Whatlinkshere gives the same title as the page itself?!
Unlike the already fixed Special:Recentchangeslinked.

grep -i '<title>'
		<title>Elm Point, Minnesota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</title>
		<title>Elm Point, Minnesota - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</title>
		<title>Related changes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</title>

However, this is still not good enough when one digs through one's
browser history: on the last line above, the page name we are talking
about should be mentioned too! More important use of space than "the
free encyclopedia".
