#13041 reviewing defect (bug)

Canonical redirection will redirect a non-exitant page to a post.

Following on from #12601

Canonical redirection will kick in for http://localhost/wordpress-commit/apage/something and redirect it to http://localhost/wordpress-commit/2010/02/13/something-else/

#12601 limited redirect_guess_404_permalink() to only searching in the same post_type if one was provided, for posts and pages however, which are builtin, these vars are not set.

I'm attaching a patch which will prevent a Page -> Post redirection, but not the other way around. - this patch was originally added to the other ticket.

13041.diff stops /something/ (a broken page) from redirecting to /2015/09/18/something-else/ - requires a little bit of guessing what is happening. This breaks 2 unit tests, which is expected as it fixes the issue described in the ticket.
