Description Russell Blau 2009-02-19 20:07:56 UTC
The current (r47457) software is bypassing double-redirects on enwiki, even though, as far as I can tell, $wgMaxRedirects is still at its default value of 1.  (I can't verify this fact, though.)  With this setting, double redirects should not be followed.  The software is acting as if $wgMaxRedirects were set to 2.  See:

[[User:R'n'B/R1]], a triple-redirect
[[User:R'n'B/R2]], a double-redirect, and 
[[User:R'n'B/R3]], a single-redirect.
