Every registered user have permission to rename a web. I can't figure out how to restrict this. I have all my permissions setup with ALLOW and DENY (topic,web,rename) in the default configuration.

For test proposes i added the following on the web WebPreferences topic:

When TestUser tries to rename a warning appears showing that he doesnt have permission to modifiy many topics, but after clicking continue he still can rename the entire Web!

He can also rename TWiki web, with the corresponding mess that derives from that.

I have tested this on many TWiki 4.2 fresh installations and can't figure out what's wrong.
