 This is actually a bug then. Only the last part of the URL (ie. the 'name'
 query var) is used to guess the correct page.

 The resulting SQL when requesting either `example.com/foo/amazin` or
 `example.com/amazin` both look like this:

 `SELECT ID FROM wp_posts WHERE post_name LIKE 'amazin%' AND post_status =

 Not sure how to address this. Not sure if the return on investment in time
 fixing it is actually worth it.
