When an a redirected image name is used instead of the actual image name, the link behaves different from article redirects. The link points directly to the actual image name, so that the linked image name does not appear in the markup (and the markup image name does not appear on the html page).

Image redirects should behave like article redirects, with links pointing to the redirect name and a message pointing out the fact that it was redirected when the actual image page is served up.

Fixed in r45191.

Reverted in r45258

Seems to be bizarrely adding a "redirected from" subtitle to *every* shared image page view, instead of to redirects. WTF?

why shouldn't Image redirects behave like Template redirects?

Because Image/File redirects (especially on Commons) are used to create language-specific descriptive file names for use on other wikis, and because images produce mouse-over text of the file name. If a given wiki is intentionally using a redirect file name rather than the original, then they would benefit from have the mouse-over text be that of the redirect, and also from being able to click on an image and know from the image page what the markup was (e.g., so that the image may be removed).

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ragesoss/Image_redirect_bug for an example.

A further problem is, that the API does not give the redirect flag for file redirects:

That would seem to indicate that page_is_redirect isn't set to 1 for image redirects.

More strangely it is set. (At least on the toolserver)
