Summary: Categories not showing on file redirects
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.17
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Categories

When adding any category to a redirect page in the File: namespace, the
category name does not display in the page's bottom "Categories" box, although
the page itself does get added to the category.

In the given example URL, the page is in [[Category:Test category]], and when
you go to the category page "Category:Test category" it is there, but on the
redirect page itself the category is not showing. ("Category:Test category" is
a non-existent category but that doesn't matter, it's the same for any

To reproduce, simply: Go to any file redirect using
[[Special:RandomRedirect/File]], and try adding a category to the page, either
using Hotcat or by manually editing the page.

This was supposed to be fixed along with [[bugzilla:23851]] in the new 1.17
release but I guess it was overlooked.
