If "Allow non WikiWord for the new topic name" is checked, it is possible to rename a topic name to something like
. This will create a
file in the data directory.

The topic will not be showed correctly by the view script. It will also break various actions like renaming another topic in the same web the bad topic is in. This topic is then very difficult to delete/rename from the browser.

Steps to reproduce:

1) create a topic name


2) Rename that topic to

using checked "Allow non WikiWord for the new topic name"

I would say we need to prevent to use those characters when renaming. Updated bug summary as such.
