Description Christian Semrau 2005-01-09 18:04:36 UTC
I just ran into the following phenomenon at the german Wikipedia.

I saved a link like [[Test-'-a]] on a test page.
The whatlinkshere-Funktion of the page [[Test-'-a]] shows no links to it, but
[[Test-\'-a]] thinks it is linked from the test page.

This is independent of wether the page Test-'-a exists or not.

The same applies to ", as you can see at

Great, so this is a much reported bug. I don't see how it is "resolved" when the
problem still exists.
