Parameter $2 of [[MediaWiki:Signature-anon]] is filled incorrectly

Description:
Per the discussion at [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)&oldid=296723291#Autosig_not_working_.7E.7E.7E.7E]:
The parameter $2 of [[MediaWiki:Signature-anon]] is filled incorrectly as e.g. "Contributions/199.125.109.102"
With the default value of the message, this will display as e.g. [[Special:Contributions/199.125.109.102|Contributions/199.125.109.102]] which is most probably not the intended behavior.

It can of course be workarounded in the message

getUserSig.

After updating to that revision I can no longer reproduce the bug on my test wiki, and I assumed Nikerabbit knew what he was talking about in his commit message. If you want to reopen the bug, please find evidence that the bug is still occuring for versions > 51910 first.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
