The patch https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/108740 is not correct for all cases.
When you have a shared core code (the core code especially the code of
/maintenance being shared by using the symbolic link method for more than one
wiki) the present patch is wrong, because it does not indicate, which Wiki's
job queue is treated.
The present code only runs "php runJobs.php", it missing something like
"php runJobs.php --conf=<path-to-localsettings-of-the-present-wiki>"
I hope, you understand what I mean.
I detected this problem when running the E:ReplaceText (latest git version)
together with latest git version of core, i.e. dated 2014-01-31.
