Created attachment 4539
patch for Article.php

It seems to only the case for new articles, see http://ksh.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spezial:Letzte_%C3%84nderungen&hidebots=0

Reason : Article::doEdit() now requires unconditionnaly the EDIT_FORCE_BOT flag to mark the edit as bot, but Article::insertNewArticle() doesn't add it if the edit should be marked as bot, here a patch to fix it.
