Using Cite and <ref> tags invalid rows are created in the pagelinks table.
These rows are invalid because they have a pl_title = ''.
This -may- break Special:MostLinkedPages page (a fix was put in to stop invalid titles breaking the page) - see #18943, #17751 and #17713 for more information on this flavor of issue.
To identify broken pages:
wikidb.page page left join
wikidb.pagelinks p on page.page_id = p.pl_from
where p.pl_title = '';
1. Run the query above to ensure you have no broken page titles
2. Edit a page and add <ref name="test">http://google.com, a search engine</ref>
3. Re-run the query
I'm not confident this is a bug with the Cite extension or whether it is the engine but thought it most appropriate here.
I am assuming blank rows are an issue because issue #17713 says "Invalid database rows worry me" in regards to rows with an empty pl_title
Can't imagine this is xp specific..
I can't reproduce this; what version are you using?

MediaWiki Version 1.14.0
I cannot reproduce this either. Is it possible for you to easily this on a later version ?
