Description Brion Vibber 2005-04-30 01:36:53 UTC contains this 
link: [[:Image:Town hall, Reims, France 2004-11-05.jpg|image page]]

The hyphen-to-dash conversion changes the - characters into en-dashes 
during rendering, silently changing the link to point at http://

This will make it impossible to link to certain pages.
