new mediawiki softwareversion

We encountered a problem in the german wiktionary. It seems to be related to the new mediawiki softwareversion installed tonight. The problem is, that if you enter a non existing pagename in a rhyme page using your rhymeeditor this pagename is created as an empty page. I just tested if this also happens in the english wiktionary, because we ported the rhymeeditor from here. I found you have the same problems. It might be a change in the api, so that the rhymeeditor has to be fixed. But i didnt figured this out yet.

I fixed this in the german wiktionary by inserting some code to test if a page exists.

... JsMwApi().page(values.rhyme).edit(
 function(text, saveFunction, editRes){
  if(editRes.query.pages.hasOwnProperty("-1")) {
   document.body.style.cursor= --numberOfRhymesAdded ? 'wait' : '';
   return;
  }
 var langcode = setUpRhymeAdder.langCode || (new LangMetadata()).cleanLangCode(langname), ...

Should be fixed now, but I haven't tested it. Thank you for pointing out the bug.
