Description Purodha Blissenbach 2006-08-14 12:24:12 UTC
There seems to be a bug in the ParserFunctions code or related that causes all pages using a 
certain template to randomly display either the text:


instead of the expanded template Navvi_Joohr_Joodousende.

This affects many "year" articles in the Wikipedia of Ripuarian languages - in fact all those 
already using the template Navvi_Joohr_Fooß - and can be seen at the very end of them,  e.g.

See comment #1 on bug 7005, same behaviour.

Comment 2 Purodha Blissenbach 2006-08-14 13:02:02 UTC
I cannot see any relation to the comment #1 on bug 7005 for three reasons:
1) There is nothing random reported in bug 7005
2) all affected pages have (should have) identical navigation bars on their top and 
their end, only the order reversed. Top bars are always good, while the last of the 
bottom navigation bars consistently fails - one of two observed failiures results is 
randomly selected at a probability of 1:2, it seems, different with every invocation 
of the page. Even if failiure were intended by programmers (why?) - random behaviour 
is a bug on its own.
3) If it were truly a newly imposed size limitation (on whatever), I have to file a 
bug against am incorrect or inconsistent implementation of the limit, since here the 
few words "et zweijte,  et eetßte Johdousend füür, unn_et eetßte, et zweijte, et 
drette Johdousend noh Krißtoß" (with wikilinks) only were above the limit, while 
elsewhere full pages of tables of data can be transcluded unmolested.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2006-08-14 13:05:55 UTC
The template expansion is not occurring because the expansion size limit is
being reached on certain pages. It's the same behaviour.
