Fixed in r35870.

The previous code used "an atrocious hack" to bump subject & talk pages to the appropriate target namespace, which sent you to the wrong place if you were directly moving a talk page to begin with -- adding 1 to the talk namespace instead of to the base subject namespace.

New code is nice and explicit and picks the right one.
