I experienced that the "special page" tag (at special pages) was leading to the
actual link - actual special page including all parameters.
If you click in "special page" at
you will get a "shortened" link
Note: The page
does *not* exist.

Hm. Works for me - the "special page" tab just links to exactly the same page as
you're viewing. So the link is pointless, in that it points to the page you're
already on, but it doesn't take you anywhere unexpected.
Looking at the source, though, I think I can see what's happening, because the
link is as follows:
<a href="">Special Page</a>
I don't think there's a very well-defined behaviour for links pointing to "", so
different browsers will do different things. Mozilla is just treating it as
"link to same page", but whatever you used (IE?) treated it as "link to [index
of] containing directory".
In actual fact, it might be nicer not to have a link there at all (just text),
but at the very least it should have an explicit target.
