Creating and linking to a page with an ampersand in the title causes unexpected
results. A red link to such a page allows editing, but as soon as the page is
saved the "There is currently no text in this page, you can search for this page
title in other pages or edit this page." template is displayed and the page
title is displayed truncated at the ampersand.
The same brokenness results when following a link to said page -- the page title
being displayed is truncated at the ampersand and nothing is displayed.
Output of Special:Version from the wiki where this is happening --

extensions running 1.7.1 on the same webhost.

You have bad mod_rewrite rules. Use an alias instead of rewrite for best
compatibility, or patch Apache; see the patch in maintenance/.
