New user topic in a TWiki with no form UserForm in Main web results in the error

Form definition 'TWiki.UserForm' not found

and no form is shown.

I have noticed that in all user topics there is

%META:FORM{name="%25SYSTEMWEB%25.UserForm"}   last % omitted to avoid this meta to be interpreted

Note the %25

I think this was also the case in 4.1.2 so we have to be careful with compatibility here

But the result is that the SYSTEMWEB variable is not interpreted.

If I change it to TWiki.UserForm then it works.

How did you generate the new user topic? By registering?

SYSTEMWEB was defined as a user preference, so was not getting expanded correctly when the form topic name was normalised.
