Logging problem verbally described to me by [[:en:User:Ta Bu Shi Da Yu]] :
* User goes into the History of a Wikipedia article.
* Clicks the link to view an old revision of the article.
* In the navigation bar, the user chooses "Cite this article".
* The Special:Cite page will then return a citation for the _current_ revision
of the page, not the historical revision that the user was looking at.
Result: This hurts our credibility with academics, as our citations for
ourselves are wrong.
Barring any stuff-ups, should be fixed in r21744 - marking as resolved.
This bug I was stated about a year ago, and now it have been already fixed.

Reverted r21744 and r21745 in r21760.
Seems to be taking the raw 'oldid' URL parameter, which is not necessarily the
revision ID number being viewed. For instance when paging through versions, the
'oldid' parameter may reference the starting point for a directional page (with
'dir=prev' or 'dir=next' parameter). Also missing the revision number for
current-revision views, losing the permalink ability. This should be using the
revision number actually being viewed, which should already be known at the
output/skin level for permalink etc.
