What I did

  1. Open VisualEditor in Wikipedia other than English Wikipedia.
  2. Highlight a word to be linked and press on link button or Ctrl+K
  3. Paste https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (or any other fullurl from English Wikipedia)

What happend
A link to [[wikipedia:Main_page]] is added instead of [[:en:Main_page]]

(please feel free to rephrase the title)
