Editing a label gives an error saying another item has the same description when it doesn't
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

I tried to edit the English label (to remove the bit in brackets) on https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q15869633 but it gives an error claiming that https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q138280 has the same description, when it doesn't.

The exact error message: Item Q138280 already has label "Alaşehir" associated with language code en, using the same description text.

I have confirmed this. I see nothing in the database that would cause this issue.

...and as before, I recommend we implement T74430: Re-implement uniqueness constraint in a consistent and efficient way to fix these issues.
