Description Akl 2004-08-30 10:26:10 UTC
The article [[35874621589754621678135]] ( ) was 
listed on Spezial:Newpages as "11:45, 30. Aug 2004 3.58746215897546e+22 (522 Byte) . ."

The problem was that values determined to be numeric were being sent raw (without surrounding quotes) to the database. 
Conversion to a number and back to a string for the title field is not always perfect, hence the corrupted value.

I've removed the special case, so now even numeric-looking values will be escaped. The given title now works correctly, and 
shows normally in Special:Newpages when created.

Fix in 1.4, 1.3.3 CVS, and put live on Wikipedia*.

Since this is unspecific to Special:Newpages, I'll fix the summary.
