Affects both ShortURLConstructor and ShortViewURLConstructor:

The InterWiki Link Edit:SomePage is defined as Edit.jsp?page=%s. If ShortURLConstructor is defined, it is rendered as

http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/Edit.jsp?page=SomePage
instead of
http://www.jspwiki.org/Edit.jsp?page=SomePage

This also causes Contributed Plugins to fail which use relative links to servlets. For example the ImageXPlugin generates this relative link to a servlet:

<img src="imageServlet?page=test.png&width=250" width="250" />

With the ShortURLConstructor it points to this URL

http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/imageServlet?page=test.png&width=250
instead of the correct mapping which is
http://www.jspwiki.org/imageServlet?page=test.png&width=250


Today I made some experiments with ShortURLConstructor and have seen similar behavior as well. Also I expierienced problems even with the Main page. In my case I had a contextPath other than "wiki". Switched back to default and will observe this Bug.

Plugins should use URL generation, using the WikiContext.getURL() mechanism, which will figure out the correct URL. The bug is thus in the plugins.
