Special characters in article titles

I think I found a little glitch: User:Heimstern Läufer should link to Heimi's page, but instead it's redlinked and takes you straight to editing his page. I assume it's a result of the special character in the page title, but I don't know if other pages are having this same issue. Trey56 07:48, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Other examples:

Interestingly, these links work fine from Special:Listusers and Special:Search. Trey56 08:09, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

On the other hand, these links work fine, so maybe the issue is just with accented Latin and Greek characters:

Well, maybe this will help narrow down what the problem is. Trey56 08:20, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Hmmm, from my point of view, somehow it seems all those you listed seem to work except the first one. What had changed? Any way to easily fix this w/o having to file a bug report? --Stux 16:50, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
I wrote this feature; it's not standard with MediaWiki. The problems are caused by a bug in our version of MySQL. I worked around most of the cases (as you have noted), but the function still has trouble correctly interpreting non-English capital characters. My plan is to also work around at least the case above, and possibly others depending on whether we have the need. In addition, I'm going to investigate the possibility of our upgrading to the latest version of MySQL. — It's dot com 01:28, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
