 The function mentioned in the summary causes a double load of pages. If I
 reload page A. Page A is loaded and about 3 sec. later, the page mentioned
 in the <link rel="next"> tag, in the header, loads invisibly in the
 background. This is probably thought to be a caching feature, but as it is
 now, you can imagine, this has an enormous effect on the tracking and
 pageimpression measurement of every wordpress intallation.
 Our development Team realized this bug while developing our custom
 database tracking, as there where after reloading one page two new entries
 for each page visited.
 We are about to put a big Marketplace Site, based on Wordpress, to
 production. This issue is very urgent for us, because not only the
 tracking and updating features but several other important features are
 affected by this problem.
 Solution proposal:
 Maybe you can set a flag so it is possible to turn off this function
 writing those links into the header.
