[Mediawiki-l] apostrophe in search/name creation causes error

I tried to find a page from the "Search" box called "De l'Autre Rive".  When 
told that the page did not exist I clicked on "create this page", and it 
created a page called "Rive".  I am 99% sure that this was caused by the 
apostrophe.  I eventually got the page name I wanted:

Is this a bug?  A usability problem?

I am using MW 1.7.1
