There appears to be a change in behaviour in BulkRegistration. In 4.1.2 (and earlier) a new user topic would be created, with the user form, as long as there was no name clash on the topic. In 4.2.0-beta2 (same for beta1) the UnprocessedRegistrationLog reports 'Not writing user topic', even though it does create a topic, which just consists of the user's email address. The old behaviour, and full user topic, is created fine if OVERWRITEHOMETOPICS = 1 is set in the BulkRegistration topic first. lib/TWiki/UI/Register.pm (which I think is the code involved) no longer refers to NewUserTemplate in the create user topic stage, if that's relevant.

This appears to have been fixed in the final 4.2.0 release. Closing.
