            Bug ID: 59710
           Summary: Search function on Simple English Wiktionary
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: wmf-deployment
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General/Unknown

Searching for pages -- in any namespace -- on the Simple English Wiktionary
brings up titles from the English Wiktionary, regardless of whether they exist
locally.

This happens in both the drop-down list of suggested titles *and* the separate
results page.

I have uploaded to Commons some screen captures of an example:

The following is a screen capture of the search results for "cursor" on
simple.wiktionary
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Simplewikt-search2.png
None of the items in the drop-down list exist on simple.wiktionary
Highlighted in red is the entry for "hover", which contains the word "cursor"
in a definition about computing. It states that the page was last changed on
14:37, 9 December 2013.

The local entry for "hover" has never contained the word "cursor". It doesn't
correspond with anything that was in the search results, and the latest
revision was made on 21 November 2012.

The page that appears in the results is hosted on en.wiktionary
I've highlighted the definition that appears in the results and the timestamp.

This problem was reported on the wiki in October 2013, but we have really low
traffic so it could have started months before that.
