Damn! I've fixed that two or three times already; the link just seems
to keep self destructing. The page referred to above can currently be
found at http://tinyurl.com/5s9kbk
Earnie, I consider this to be a serious issue. It seems to be related
to the `automatic alias' feature of the page editor. The `automatic
alias' for that page is, IMO, way too long to be practically useful; I
turned off the feature when I created that page, and gave it the much
more sensible short name shown above; why does the stupid long name
keep coming back to trash the page references?
If we are going to use `automatic aliases', then we also need to be
able to maintain duplicate short form names; if we can't do that,
then I think we should disable `automatic aliases' *universally*.
