A page like
'''This''' is a [[foo]].
is shown as a redirect on foo's What links here.
The issue is visible at http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Linkliste/Eiwei%C3%9F with http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Hauptzelle&redirect=no
I assume we want it not to get listed on Whatlinkshere/Foo at all, right?

or as a normal link, I'm not sure about that.
The backlink should not be listed at all - if A is a redirect to B, and A happens to also link to C, and D links to A, that does not mean that D links to C in any way. It might make slight sense to think of D linking to B (skipping the redirect), but not to C.
This issue is visible on enwiki in
(look for User talk:Politics rule).
It also shows up because of pages like
which link to [[en:Taxon]] via a redirect sorting template. The backlinks for Taxon show numerous examples of the problem.
