Bug: The META parent tag should use a minimal match

In the handleMetaTags file in TWiki.pm, the current implementation for %META{"parent"}% uses a maximal match. I think this should be minimal.

The code would look like:

$text =~ s/%META{\s*"parent"\s*(.*?)}%/&renderParent( $theWeb, $theTopic, $meta, $1 )/ge;

Test case

Any attempt to use META parent where another variable is evaluated after it on the same line will exhibit the problem.

Follow up

This seems logical, and to lack any side-effects. So I'm converting this to a patch proposal.
