Give credit for redirects.
This may or may not be simply "part of the challenge," but periodically there are improperly formatted tags that lead to redirects to the desired page. When reached by redirect, there's no credit given, requiring finding another way back there.
Wouldn't be as much of a problem but sometimes the time just runs out when you make these extra clicks and nothing happens for a really long time, and that's just no fun.
We fixed this issue by now changing and showing the link text as exactly what the link leads to, so there should be no more confusion as to where a link leads when clicking on it.
"Passion (Christianity)" is a redirect to "Passion of Jesus" which did not count.
I lost by getting to the Bellagio instead of the Bellagio_(Hotel_and_Casino). Yes, fix this.
Bing (search engine) --> Bing = Lose, supossed win
Tax --> Taxonomy = Lose, supossed win
YES! Why do we have this bug in the first place? Redirects always lead to the exact same URL as that of the original page.

I just lost a game because I got to Cambridge_University instead of University_of_Cambridge. Very annoying!
Also the votes for "Answer variations" should get counted for this too, as it's talking about the same issue. http://wikipediagame.uservoice.com/forums/33734-general/suggestions/729216-answer-variations
YES!!! This is a huge problem. I kept wondering why I was at the target page but it wasn't registering as a win.

This is a big problem with the 5 Clicks to Jesus game.
YES! This can become really annoying at times, and there is no way of knowing if an article you're headed for has well-formatted links.
Yes, I agree that this is a really big problem... Especially because once you're on the page that normally redirects to the winning article, it's pretty impossible to find a link to itself...
