When creating a clickable map using the new map feature, the software copies the
previous map entry onto the next item. This causes the links to be wrong.
Taking an image map I made with software which does that, I then translated it
to the format Wikimedia expects. The generated map copies item one to item 2.
Now item 2 contains all the coordinates of item 1 in front of its own. Then
item 3 contains item 2's coordinates before its own.
Examine the page for List of Texas Area Codes.
Check the clickable links, notice how some of them don't match the area code
they are to represent. Examine the wiki source and see that each area is marked
for a specific place, then look at the actual generated page through 'view page
source' in your browser, the coordinates in the wiki source and the coordinates
on the generated page are not the same; but it's easy to spot the problem: the
map coordinates in HTML for item 1 are copied to the front of item 2; then the
coordinates for item 1 and item 2 are copied to the front of item 3; then the
coordinates for item 1, item 2 and item 3 are copied to the front of item 4, and
Basically, the link generator should not copy each entry in front of the one
that follows it. :)
Fixed in r20298.
