I actually did the Php5 updates when I was installing the php-curl
module. I did find some file missmatch errors so I decided to go ahead &
upgrade to mediawiki-1.19.0 to make sure all my dependencies were in
sync. That fixed the problem. Also; at least so far...no screen
artifacts, & the {{wikipedia::linktopage}} is now working fine. I'll
leave it be for a while. LOL!!
