I also get the "too many links" error. However, I doubt it's related to 
the page's contents, and therefore I don't think reducing the number of 
hyperlinks on the page will make the error go away.

The stack trace my browser shows me says that the "too many links" is 
raised by a call to os.mkdir, so it must be a problem of the webserver's 

Can the admins check how many files are in the directory 
/home/scipy/wiki/data/pages/? I suspect it's more than the file systems 
limitation (2^15 in case of ext2/3, IIRC).

Maybe Moinmoin doesn't clean orphaned Backups from that directory 
automatically, and a cronjob could help?

Cheers, A.
