Summary: Pipe character does not work when using File:
                    namespace on non-image file
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Images and files

For example, [[File:ThisFile.doc|This is a document file]] will be displayed on
the page as "File:ThisFile.doc" instead of "This is a document file".

This same problem does not occur when using the Media: namespace.  This is a
problem because if I want to link to the file info page without using just the
filename, I cannot do so.  Media: only opens the file.

This seems to affect all versions.  Any workarounds would be helpful as well.
