Mediawiki is showing text from MediaWiki:<Message>/<lang1> also on MediaWiki:<Message>/<lang1>/<lang2>
Open, MediumPublic

Description

For some reason MediaWiki started to display the content of e.g.
[[MediaWiki:Savearticle/fr]]
also on
[[MediaWiki:Savearticle/fr/ru]].
The same happens for any combination of languages and messages I tested.

Is this the new expected behavior? Why?

That's what you (we) get for trying to be intelligent and loading the message content on the fly. I'd say one more argument to stop doing that and providing better tool for message customization.
