Summary: Liquid Threats sends me to page "API" telling me of
                    some edit conflict
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: LiquidThreads

Today, I wanted to write something on Translatewiki's Support page with Liquid
Threads, but then something crazy happened. I think it might be due to a too
long title, but I'm not sure.

So I typed {{msg-mw|explainconflict}} in a German interface and the following

{{msg-mw|explainconflict}} should use
<code><nowiki>{{int:savearticle}}</nowiki></code> instead of "Save page".

into the textarea of the AJAX interface (NoScript disabled). Previewing worked,
but on pressing the Save button, it led me to the page "API", with the current
page content in the upper textarea and mine in the lower one. Above the
textarea, was, ironically as it may seem, the [[MediaWiki:Explainconflict]]
blurb about an edit conflict.

Then, trying to do the same without the AJAX interface, I was not led to this
page, but it sent me to the page "Thread:59945cdbd103a6894eee31435e0004f8",
telling me that the subject I entered was invalid (the [[MediaWiki:Lqt invalid
subject]] blurb).

I have now easily solved the problem by setting a |notext=yes}} at the end
which drastically shortens the page title, but I still think that it was pretty
difficult to understand the cause for the error and that it should be improved.
Also, I'm apparently not the only one having this problem, see
