It's just that rollback, ~~~, etc appears to link to Special:Contributions for
logged-out users, which makes sense, considering IP userpages are exceedingly

As far as I can tell, $wgMaxNameChars has a default value of 255, which would
break the edit summary anyway. Adding
[[Special:Contributions/XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX|XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX]] still leaves 136
characters for the other username, which is more than ample, surely, for most

For comparision, the following is 136 characters long:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean nec tortor
massa. Nulla quis ultricies leo. Nunc rhoncus mi in orci sed.

The following is 153 characters long:
Cras bibendum erat in risus sagittis interdum. Duis eget placerat dui. Sed
rutrum laoreet neque et dictum. Curabitur mauris sem, aliquam posuere posuere.

How many usernames are four sentences long?

As an aside, according to the relase notes, 1.18 has [[Special:Contribs]] as a
redir to [[Special:Contributions]].
