Permalink problem in categories with subcategories (2 posts)

    It think I may have found a bug in wordpress. Now here's what I noticed:

    I use a clean wordpress install (latest version 3.5.1 without plugins or
    themes) with permalinks activated (post name).

    In any category without child categories, when I type
    "www.mysite.com/?cat=2" in the browser, I automatically get redirected to
    the category's permalink: "www.mysite.com/categoryname/"

    The behavior is different in categories with child categories: automatic
    redirection to permalink is not working. I type "www.mysite.com/?cat=3" and
    I do not automatically get redirected to the correct permalink. (I stay on

    How can I resolve that? Is this a real bug or not? Can I send bug report to the wordpress bug tacker?

    There's how to provoke the bug:

    * Install the latest wordpress version 3.5.1
    * Create a category with sub-categories
    * Create another category without sub-categories
    * Activate permalinks setting using option "Post name" in Settings > Permalinks
    * type http://www.mysite.com/?cat=ID - replace ID with either a category without
    children or with children
