Screen capture showing the problem

When viewing an image from Commons on a local Wikimedia project, the description page does not always appear. To me, this seems to be happening randomly: sometimes I don't see the problem during weeks, sometimes I see it ten times in a row. I know it doesn't help much, sorry.

Description of the problem: the image appears, under it its size and the link to the high resolution version, then the link to Commons (as given by [[MediaWiki:Sharedupload]]). In normal times, the description page from Commonsis then transcluded below. However, when the error occurs, then only the message [[MediaWiki:Shareduploadwiki]], with incorrect formatting (please see the screen capture attached), and then we get straight to the file history.

I currently (today) see it happening a lot on fr.wikipedia. Thanks.

Might have been a temporary glitch or bug.

I can't reproduce the issue, closing as WFM; feel free to reopen if this issue comes up again.
