Here's the test case i ran to confirm this problem:
  1. Create a new subweb. I'll call the parent web "Test1" and the subweb "Subweb1".
  2. Go to WebPreferences of the new subweb and click on Rename/move/delete web....
  3. Select "Trash" from the dropdown menu.
    • As an aside here, it seems that there is no way to move a subweb to a top-level web.
  4. Click OK. Notice the parent web is now gone.
  5. Browsing the file directory under Trash web and you'll find "Subweb1" but this will contain the content of the Test1 web and it will include the Subweb1 sub-web.

I tried this process in pattern skin and the problem did not arise. I looked at the renameweb.nat.tmpl and renamewebbase.nat.tmpl templates but I could not figure out what was going on.

I also notice the comments on the left side in the rename web screen do not seem to list the parent web and subweb names correctly. They display 0 .
