I think that the image dir has been moved to /var/lib/mediawiki and was
in /usr/share on the first releases of mediawiki.
I can't remember well the file structure before the upload to sid.
I think the correct way to handle this bug is to check from the first
package that was uploaded to sid if the parameter $IP is correctly
generated to /var/lib/..
Then, your bug would only be a remiscence from early packaging.
I will test it with a fresh instalation.
What do you think?
