[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#656163: mediawiki: Edit and Recent Changes broken after lenny->squeeze upgrade with PostgreSQL backend

Package: mediawiki
Version: 1:1.15.5-2squeeze2
Severity: important

After a lenny to squeeze dist-upgrade, my mediawiki installation is fine
for read access, but attempts to edit pages or view recent changes fail.
I infer that there has been some schema change between mediawiki 1.12.0
(lenny) and 1.15.5 (squeeze) which was not enacted by the package

I've tried looking on the BTS, searching on Google and asking on #debian
to find a solution to this problem, but the search results are cluttered
with similar error messages in different contexts.

I enabled $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; in LocalSettings.php to
produce the following stack traces.
