Update: There was another change[1] which introduced the message  
[[MediaWiki:Coll-bookscategory]], which broke the collection-loader  
link on wikis wich customized the system messages of this extension.  
You probably may want to change this message to "Collection" also.
Stored collection pages now automatically include a  
[[Template:saved_book]]  at their beginning. Therefore you might also  
want to change [[MediaWiki:Coll-savedbook_template]] and create the  
template (see an example[2]).
