Renamed the Main web to Game then when logging in again was told that Main web does not exist by access control! Totally screwed the whole system. I was able to get round it by typing a url of another web and then workingmy way back to preferences in the Game web and selected rename, but again the dreaded access controll told me that no Main web existed to rename. So i found the access control module and chopped out the whole content of the access checking method except for return 1 and then tried to rename back to Main. Success! But for 20 minutes there I thought I had lost everything.

Renaming the web involves more steps as documented in ManagingWebs.

To avoid these "gotchas" I removed the rename link in Main.WebPreferences and TWiki.WebPreferences.

To reflect this, I changed the summary of this bug item from "Rename Main web breaks TWiki" to "Prevent GUI-based rename of TWiki web and Main web".
