Summary: Article::doEdit() can have fatal side effect
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.16.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page editing

Sometimes the wrong article is edited, because Article::doEdit() has side
effect. I tracked it down doEdit > prepareTextForEdit > getContent ->
loadContent which calls getOldID() which calls request parameters, and after
that calls fetchContent which updates mTitle.

This is seen at least in 1.16.0, probably happens in trunk too.
