I assume you run the released version of 4.2.0 and not a checkout from subversion.

I made a fix on Item5458 "Rename web drop all link refer to the web" which may be the same issue.

Can you try and apply the patch on that report and tell me if this resolves the problem.

I have reopened the 5458 because there is a special case I did not cover with my fix but my fix on 5458 works in most cases.
