New kind of bug: category/parent (2 posts)

    I may have uncovered a WP bug (or oversite).

    I guess I made a mistake, and named a parent page by a name, let's say: "plumbing repairs"

    while I also named a category by the same name: "plumbing repairs"

    I then created a child page, let's say: "leaky faucet"

    and finally created a post under the category (plumbing repairs) with the same name: "leaky faucet".

    So in the end, I had created two pages with exactly the same URL -- and WP did this for me with no error message or warning.
    For several minutes my site was inaccessible.
