I also had this problem and changed the link button a bit. My solution
was to go the "pointy-clicky" route :) I made a modification which works
somewhat like the media link button. When the user clicks the "Internal
Link" button they are presented with a popup window which lets them 
select a namespace, page, optional section and description. This makes
it much easier to link to existing pages by simply browsing to them. Its
also handy for creating new page links for non-technical users that have
trouble remembering the correct syntax.

I've attached a screenshot. If anyone is interested in this, I can try
to assemble a darcs patch for it.
