Summary: Special:ask drops unnamed properties
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Semantic MediaWiki

When performing a query through Special:ask or when attempting to obtain
further results from an inline query, Special:ask will forget about any "?# -"
specified in the query. This is the suggested means of obtaining the title of
the resulting page without having it linked.

This occurs even in the sandbox at

To recreate this issue:

1. In the sandbox query all pages with [[Category:Person]] and return "?name"
and "#? -"

2. Notice there are three columns returned: the link to the page, the person's
name, and the name of the page with no link. 

3. Click Next for results 21-40

4. Notice there are only two columns returned: the link to the page, and the
person's name

Somewhere along the line, the "?# -" was eaten... This is especially vital to
templates that make use of the "?# -" property in a variable because it may
shift the variable used by all the other properties (If its not the last
property queried for).
