I discovered another problem with WysiwygPlugin that can destroy your topic text:

This happened when I edited Item5858. I did the following:

  1. Edit topic in Wysiwyg
  2. Click the pickax ("Edit TWiki markup") to get text in TML .
  3. Edit some more.
  4. Save topic.

After that, the whole topic was one long string, with all formatting that added line spacing or bullets, etc., gone.

I marked this as urgent, as destroying the original topic text is not good.

Reports based on develop.twiki.org at the moment are more noise than anything else.

d.t.o runs on trunk and not TWikiRelease04x02

The TWiki Stand Alone code that was cheched in currently causes more than 50 unit test failures and nearly everything I touch is busted.

I took rev 8 of 5858 and copied it to my 4.2.1 installation and pickxed along several times saving both from pickaxe and from Wysiwyg returning from pick axe. And I could not reproduce the problem.

Naturally you could have added something extra while editing

I am going to no/action this one.

Another thing is that d.t.o often SVN updates and we see many "errors" during these transitions. If the rest script is interrupted during the SVN update then it also goes wrong.

A third problem is that d.t.o has a problem somewhere in the network connection. Often you suddenly cannot save topics or they save half way. Right now I am trying to restore 5858 and I get time out again and again. We know it is not TWiki. The IP packets never reach the server. This can also goof up the rest script I am sure.

If you can provide an example topic that you can pickaxe to death on a 4.2 then please attach it and reopen the bug.

it is not because I am about to release I take this action. I have tried to reproduce the problem for an hour. I cannot!
