BUG MIGRATED FROM SOURCEFORGE

On fr: ther is an article (a stub in fact) with the
name [[Fonction &delta; de Dirac]].
It's impossible to rename it and worse; the soft
doesn't detect that the renaming failed so
theredirection page is still created with a bad name
[[Fonction %CE%B4 de Dirac]].

Copying text of #856267, marked as duplicate of this:
There are several ways to write a wikilink with a
superscript-2 in the destination article text:
Of these, the top two resolve to the same page, and
each of the latter two resolves to a brand new page.
All three have the same article title, despite being
different articles as far as the database is concerned.
So the creating the two latter pages in the above list
produced the following watchlist fragment:
NM 15:09 User:Finlay McWalter:sandbox:m² (cur; hist) .
. Finlay McWalter (Talk) (another tmp page)
M 15:08 Current events (cur; hist) . . Menchi (Talk)
NM 15:08 User:Finlay McWalter:sandbox:m² (cur; hist) .
. Finlay McWalter (Talk) (created (superscript in URLs
So it sure looks like the "new article" code should
resolve the escaping of characters to produce the
canonical article name.
I'm [[User:Finlay McWalter]] on the english wikipedia.
