existing parameter-links in template treated as non-existant

If a template contains [[{{{foo}}}]], and a page
invokes that with a parameter like "foo=bar", the page
contain [[bar]], except that "bar" will be treated like
a non-existant article, whether it exists or not. See

which all use the {{Infobox_Countries}} template. (e.g.
the links to their respective national anthems are
treated as non-existant articles)

I suspect that this bug has the same origin as 962674
(images with template parameters inside their [[-brackets).

I was about to submit a new bug, but this appears to be describing the problem I
am suffering.

Take a loook at these pages:,_Victoria Lakes,_Victoria

Please check the links between these two pages, in the table on each page.
(Note these two pages are the only ones to use the infobox as yet.) Is this bug
suffered on these pages the same bug as what this page is describing?

Also note: I didn't see any problem on the Sweden and Netherlands' pages below,
but the '30,510 km²' link on Belgium's page appears non-existant (though the
link does exist)
