Same problem with http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Cthelmet212.png and possibly all files previously inserted in the now deleted Wikipedia page.

Confirmed - can still see that page on the uses when it was deleted in January 2011. Purging the page doesn't solve the problem.

I found a workaround: If we remove the link to the file before deleting the page it will not be on GlobalUsage when the page is deleted.

Hmm... actually, what I get is two links to the same page, and it is the new one which is removed from GlobalUsage when I edit the page. So, in the end I still have a link to a deleted page...

The behavior is still inconsistent:

I just added "[[File:See bug 27280.svg]]" to
https://pt.wikibooks.org/wiki/User:Marcos_Antônio_Nunes_de_Moura/monobook.js?diff=248696
and it didn't show up on
https://pt.wikibooks.org/wiki/Special:GlobalUsage/See_bug_27280.svg
but when I created the subpage "/bug 27280.js" of the same user with the content "
[[File:See bug 27280.svg]]", this new page was shown at
https://pt.wikibooks.org/wiki/Special:GlobalUsage/See_bug_27280.svg
(and the monobook.js still was not there)
Then I deleted the "/bug 27280.js" page, and it was removed from global usage instantaneously.

Why does it have problem only with the monobook.js one? Maybe it is because it was created on 21:51, 6 March 2007? (I suppose the extension was not installed at that time, was it?)
