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.
