Bug: Bad oops message when creating new web

Creating a new web without permissions results in the error:

Template file oopsaccessmanage.tmpl not found or template directory
blahblahblah not found.

Check the $templateDir variable in TWiki.cfg.
Cause: createWeb calls this:
    TWiki::UI::isAccessPermitted( $webName, $topicName,
                                  "manage", $wikiUserName );

    isAccessPermitted winds up calling
        oops( $webName, $topic, "access$mode" );
(where $mode is "manage") when access is denied.
    oops turns that into "oopsaccessmanage"

    oopsaccessmanage.tmpl doesn't exist.

Test case

Try creating a new web from the TWiki.ManagingWebs topic as TWikiGuest on twiki.org

Fix record

I changed the line to

  return unless TWiki::UI::isAccessPermitted( $webName, $topicName,
                                              "createweb", $wikiUserName );

which does exist
