I'm using two step approach to retrieve "see

articles by retrieving sections and using the section index for links
Today I noticed that for the article "Synchronous programming language"
this gives unexpected results.
... <s toclevel="1" level="2" line="See also"
number="4" index="4" .....
and the following query
gives a long list of links very different to the actual correct list shown
in the wikipedia article. Other usage of the same algorithm with other
articles works correctly.
Is this a bug?
No, it's not a bug. The "See also" section on that article also happens to
contain the navbox, so you're getting all the links from the navbox as well
as the links you expect.
Most articles don't have this problem because the "References" and
"External links" sections usually come after "See also", as described
the navboxes would wind up being part of those sections instead.
