--- Comment #3 from Greg Ubben <gregub...@comcast.net> ---
We've seen this happen at least 4 times on our wiki over the last 5 years
(roughly once every thousand edits the fixer makes). We are still on 1.17 now,
but it happened in 1.13 too.

Many of our changes are due to moving a page with many subpages. In one case
the page had a previous name, so each subpage already had a redirect. As the
fixer was running through the list, it suddenly just grabbed some random page
that had no relation at all to the pages being processed, and replaced its
contents with the redirect. I've found no pattern between the four cases. It
acts like a race condition that occasionally just gets the wrong pageid.
