The Trash default of renaming a topic as WebTopicName (e.g. trashing M=yweb.FooBar= would create Trash.MywebFooBar) fails in the case of subwebs.

The new name should be WebSubwebTopicName but TWiki is trying to insert a /.


  • create Stuff/Drafts/FooBar
  • delete Stuff/Drafts/FooBar

error: New topic name "Stuff/DraftsFooBar" is not a WikiWord

it should instead be renaming the page to StuffDraftsFooBar

(Aside from the "not a WikiWord error, there's the problem that the Trash web probably doesn't have the necessary subwebs!)
