References to a note don't get updated when you add the & symbol to the name of the note

Steps to reproduce

  1. Have a note (example).
  2. Reference a note somewhere ([[example]])
  3. Rename the note (Examples & Tutorials)

Expected result

The reference (step 2) should update to reflect the changes.

Actual result

Reference to the note remains as [[example]], and you need to manually change it for it to pick up the change with the & sign added [[Examples & Tutorials]].

I can’t reproduce. Can you make a short video about it?

I’ve tried reproducing it, but keep failing to do so. Might have just been a one-off thing.

Deserves to be in the #bug-graveyard for sure.
