When you have a subweb (ex: "TestWeb/SubWeb") and clicks "Rename/move/delete web..." on that subweb WebPreferences page, the rename page shows:

New web name: TestWeb/SubWeb

New parent web: TestWeb

The "new web name" field actually should be just "SubWeb", because if you just click OK without changing anything, twiki will move SubWeb to TestWeb/TestWeb/SubWeb. And as TestWeb/TestWeb is not a web, SubWeb doesn't appear on the Webs list on the left bar.
