Bug 2351 Interwiki links don't work on
shows the same symptoms with concatenatong InterWiki prefixes.

One part of
Bug 2226: Interwiki links to other sites than Wikipedia
is a duplicate of this bug.

There are only a few exceptions where concatenation of InterWiki links works
(some only when a page is specified).

One or both of [[meta:bm:]] [[meta:bm:Main_Page]] should work trough MediaZilla.

  1. [[meta:bm:]] includes no title, as observed above
  2. It's a bug tracker. We don't need it to be able to link to each individual

project in each individual language. Just use the URL field.

It seems the interwiki links aren't used except for when people are
cross-referencing a load of utter bollocks in bug reports anyway.
