Yes, and I've increased the priority and severity of the bug.
Created attachment 4726 [details]
I first noticed that this bug would only occur when using the PAGENAME magicword : The magicwords were escaped, in the Parser, using wfEscapeWikiText(), but * were not being escaped in this function.
Patching wfEscapeWikiText() is certainly the wrong way to fix this problem. Suppression of the lineStart (bug 529) behaviour inside links would be more appropriate, and should be easy to implement.
This is another manifestation of the terrible idea implemented in bug 529 and reported in bug 12974, marking as duplicate.
