Yes but a bug my editors really like - don't take it away please, for 
example if you want to create a link to a first daughter page, the 
[[/daughter/]] creates a nice 'daughter' as 'pretty' link, other wise 
they would have to do '[[/daughter|daughter]] to get the same result 
with a pipe. it does save a lot of typing !

my 2p worth.
