See en:Wikipedia:VIAF/errors. Please note that VIAF retrieves Wikidata mappings periodically and rebuilds their clusters based on that (at least for items about persons). VIAF identifiers can be merged based on that or component moved to other VIAF identifiers.

Ideally this information should be moved to the item for the reference and be transcluded from there.
Reports:
Error type Item(s) affected Description/Duplicates Exception Reported Resolved (also unpublished) Resolved and published Wikidata updated
Our Lady of Victory Church (Q1280925) The VIAF ID is linking to the wrong item, it's for something in a completely different country. VIAF originally had a different (probably correct) ID but changed it for some reason.
Manoel Theatre (Q576800) The item has two IDs which should be merged. The BIBSYS ID linked from 289802221 is wrong.
Pattern ^th\[((n|nb|nr|no|ns|sh|gf)([4-9][0-9]|00|20[0-2][0-9])[0-9]{6})$ will be automatically replaced to \1 and moved to Library of Congress authority ID (P244) property.
Testing: TODO list

Pattern ^([1-9]\d{1,8}|[1-9]\d{18,21})\/$ will be automatically replaced to \1.
Testing: TODO list
