Found this on the it: wiki, just converted from the UseMod (I don't know if the conversion is relevant).

If a link uses a pipe to link a different page from its appearance, and before the pipe there is a space, the link will appear red, and the linked article will open in editing mode with its contents in the text box.

Tested on [[it:Telescopio Spaziale Hubble]], there's a link to [[Secondo d'arco]]. If written like this:

[[Secondo d'arco|secondi d'arco]]

works fine. Instead this:

[[Secondo d'arco | secondi d'arco]]

(extra spaces around the pipe) will open [[Secondo d'arco]] in editing mode.

User:Alfio on Italian and English wiki.

Probably a link rebuild script problem....
