What?  How is this in any way an Apache issue?  Apache tells MediaWiki
the correct title, and MediaWiki somehow decides to respond with the
title being a-okay.

If it was an Apache issue, then why does MediaWiki think that the page
title is BIOWIKI here[1]?  It even takes the effort of linking to a
talk page that does not exist and colours the link red as it should.
Or does MediaWiki use LOWER() in its SQL, but use the $_GET['title']
for its links, rather than using the {{PAGENAME}} given by the table?

Also, you appear to have your version installed via subversion,[2] I
am certain r86390 is that different from the MediaWiki 1.16.4
available on mw.org (which does not have this bug).
