Current code tries to match identifier OR name, which can lead to 'mislinks', as described in the first post of this thread: How to get project's numeric id?

I have several projects on Redmine, let's say one of them has identifier "some-identifier-1" and name "project", and the other has identifier "project" and name "project".

I'd like to link to project page (not wiki page!) of project with identifier "project"
Linking to project:project links to project with identifier "some-identifier-1", because my Redmine (2.4.2.stable from Ubuntu 12.04) code tries to match identifier OR name, and that's the first project it finds.

I propose this patch to take only project's identifier into account when creating wiki links.
