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?
