Bump. I just ran into this again on another Wikipedia article, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novgorod_Oblast . Or given my editing history, probably the same article.

Well, I couldn't either. <chuckles>
This is still a problem, at least with the population estimate in the infobox of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novgorod_Oblast .

You're welcome (though the on-wiki notification (alert) from user Retro made it easy).
It was apparently fixed elsewhere: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template_talk:Authority_control#NARA_ID_validation

Oh—sorry. Definitely not a power user, at least as far as the underlying coding goes.
Hmm, I think maybe I'm explaining it badly? I should've used an example! I just mean that you would know (I think?) how to tweak this example link https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Contributions/Quiddity&limit=50&target=Quiddity so that it showed 500 results instead of 50. And that you might remember to check the URL if you didn't see controls on the page itself.
That's precisely what I meant. :-) The URL https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Notifications does not currently contain any additional info, beyond the name of the page. It never changes.

I'm the one who actually requested the change (see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Notifications/FAQ#Searching_old_notifications?), but I'm not a "power user", so I wouldn't have known that. [sheepish] And after checking just now, I still don't know exactly to what you are referring, though I am familiar with hacking URLs—I can't find the URL in question to hack.

Given my experience, I am in favor of running it all the time, barring any large negative consequences. (Since I reported the problem, I've run into a few instances when the search index has taken longer than it should to update, sometimes more than a day, though not recently.)

Besides whatever work is necessary to set up the sanitizer to run automatically, are there any significant negatives to the proposed change?
