See [[Category:Albums by artist]].  After I changed the
subcategories to piped links (for example
[[Category:Albums by artist|Cure albums]] so it would
alphabetize as "Cure" instead of "The").  The
subcategory list at [[Category:Albums by artist]] has
duplicate letters for piped links versus none.

I see a similar problem with [[Category:Mountains]]. On
[[Category:Mountains of Canada]], I used
[[Category:Mountains|Canada]] and on [[Category:Mountains of
China]], I used [[Category:Mountains|China]]. However, when
I go to [[Category:Mountains]], Mountains of Canada and
Mountains of China are listed under separate C letters.

The _complete_ page name is used for the default sort key --
that means
"Category:The Cure albums". Leaving it off in a custom sort key
that you sort out of sequence.

However the 'Category:' is removed from the subcategory display,
thus the confusing results. It might make sense to special-case
pages so the default sort key doesn't include the namespace.
