--- Comment #6 from Brad Jorsch <> ---
The root of the bug is apparently that TimedMediaHandler is doing something
dumb in handlers/TextHandler/TextHandler.php: it instantiates an API module,
but subclassed to point its getDB() method at some other wiki's DB, and then
calls that API module hoping that it will be able to construct a workable Title
object when passed a namespace number that doesn't even exist on the local

Why in the world didn't they just make the appropriate database query
themselves? That would've been a whole lot more straightforward than this hacky

git blame blames Jan Gerber for introducing this code in Gerrit change 16885,
so CCing him on this bug report.
