Summary: Recent changes entry not removed if page is deleted
                    through redirect suppression
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: wikimedia-deployment
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Recent changes

Easy to reproduce:
(1) Create a page with a normal user account. An entry will be shown in recent
changes. You can use that to patrol the new page, for example.

(2) Move the page to a different name, but suppress redirect creation.

Expected: The link to the old page should be removed form recent changes.

Observed: The link remains in RC and is shown as a blue link (not a red link).
The page will be shown as if it is not patrolled, and there's no way to get
back to it and patrol the edit.

This causes confusion. Possible cause is that RC is not updated when redirect
source is deleted through the redirect suppression mechanism.
