I have a web named Preview. When I try to rename it, the list of topic references mentions TWiki.TWikiCss, because Preview.pm is used there.

  • Bug in rename web topic references:

Isn't this per spec?

You have a text that looks like Web.topicname.

Does it also find the text Preview without a dot.something trailing it?

What criteria should there be to not find this link? since we allow topics that are not wikiwords I cannot really see how you can avoid this.

You can still unselect those links that are not real links. I guess this is the reason why you are presented with the list and checkmark boxes for each in the first place. You simply cannot make the selection as intelligent as a human brain.

But Web.topicname is not a wiki word, it should at least start with an uppercase character like Web.Topicname.

Closed in favour of Item4212, which I'm using to collect all backlinks-related reports so they can be fixed in one hit, and a proper spec agreed.
