If someone marks post number x as a favorite, and someone else marks comment number x as a favorite, they both end up on the same "n users marked this as a favorite" page, even though they're referring to different items.

For example, The PinkSuperHero marked post 13586 as a favorite. I then marked comment number 13586 (from post 1220) as a favorite.

Because the URL scheme has no way of distinguishing between a post number and a comment number, both favorites end up on this page: http://metatalk.metafilter.com/favorited/13586. And the 'Return to post' link now goes back to the old comment 13586 rather than the recent post 13586.

I prostrate myself for typing your name so shoddily in my excitement, ThePinkSuperhero.

Ah, I guess I didn't think collisions were likely, but I'll make a small change to fix that.
