To do this I need to look for a localized message first as a page, and if that
doesn't exist I must then look in the message cache. If there is no localized
message I must then repeat those two steps but look for the plain (nonlocalized)
Now if you look up a page in the MediaWiki: namespace normally or using
action=render and a page doesn't exist but an entry in the message cache does,
you will get the message cache entry wrapped in a div with
class="noarticletext". The page is still empty for purposes of editing etc.
Such is not the case when using action=raw which is the obvious way to access
As an alternative to fixing this bug, an addition to query.php which calls wfMsg
strings in the database would be just as good.

I assume bug referred in above comment counts "just as good". Resolving to Fixed.
