Bug: Cancelling a page creation fails in a confusing way

When editing/previewing a new page, cancelling the edition redirects to the view, that prompts to re-create it

Test case

Try to go to NonExistingPage, and cancel the edition

Fix record

I patched a fix which seems to work well based on the code I did for the Delete case. (attached: patch to lib/TWiki/UI/Save.pm for Cairo). On cancel either on edit or preview, one is redirected to the topic if it exists (with unlocking), or the parent if it exists, or the WebHome topic as a last resort.


As a code cleanup one may want to factorize the "redirect to parent till one exists" between this case and the Delete one (and others?).

I will of course have to incorporate it to Dakar, if needed,
