Imagine you've got a link to a topic in the same web, but still use the full qualified topic name (including the web prefix). For example there is a %INCLUDE{"Applications.MyApp.RenderMyObject"}% somewhere in a topic. Now, when I rename the topic RenderMyObject to RenderYourObject, the occurrence in the above INCLUDE will be rewritten to %INCLUDE{"RenderYourObject"}% ... which breaks the TWikiApplication, when it is used from a distant web (not the current web).

Solution: we should not rewrite full qualified topic names to relative ones... Where's that in the code?
