I think it's supposed to work like that, although it certainly threw me for a loop when I clicked it. I didn't realize I was on SO right away.

Appending ?noredirect=1 to the P.SE URL lets you view the original question.

  • Others redirected questions stays in P.SE for me. Example this one: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/32556/…

    That question is migrated in a different direction. The one in your post is P.SE -> SO. The one in your comment is SO -> P.SE.

  • Here's the original question for the one in your comment: stackoverflow.com/questions/4561945/… Note the SO link, but you will be redirected to P.SE.

This is by design -- we feel a migrated question should take you directly to the destination, since otherwise it's just another click to get to the actual question and any answers.
