Description Brion Vibber 2004-12-07 08:23:43 UTC
The new page move code violates the unique index on namespace+title when renaming a page over a 

Steps to reproduce:
1) Create page 'First title'
2) Move 'First title' to 'Second title'
3) Move 'Second title' to 'First title'

Actual behavior: Database error.

Expected behavior: The 'First title' and 'Second title' cur entries should have their titles swapped, and the 
redirect rewritten appropriately.

Failed query:

UPDATE cur SET cur_touched='20041207081745',cur_namespace='0',cur_title='First_title' WHERE 

from within function "Title::moveOverExistingRedirect". MySQL returned error "1062: Duplicate entry '0-
First_title' for key 2".
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-12-10 06:13:35 UTC
Now removes the redirect and recreates it.
