browsing language continuity is broken (?)

Hi all, Something strange on (for example) page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Editing_pages. The language of my MediaWiki web interface is set to FRançais. I open the page hereabove and it displays the ENglish text - ok normal since I dont request the /fr version. Then I select a link for example "sysop permission" at beginning of "...anyone with sysop permission". The requested page I see from the EN one, is now in the FR page of the link. I am surprised since I expected the coherence of language with the root EN page. Do we agree this break is a normal behaviour ? May be documented it somewhere ?

This is normal behavior when you go to "Special:MyLanguage" pages so I don't see anything broken.

For the reader lambda, the discontinuity comes since you start with english language and you land on a foreign one.

You are correct, this is weird. We should send the user to the language user's currently seeing the page in, not Special:MyLanguage.
