Similar issue was noticed in the past - check http://develop.twiki.org/~twiki4/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/Item2837

-- TWiki:Main.SopanShewale - 14 Jan 2009

Yes, this is an urgent bug. It's frustrating to see so many of the same bugs appear again and again. Lessons:

  1. Let's be more careful with code refactoring work.
  2. Let's add unit tests to test for this.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 15 Jan 2009

Peter, the test case already exists in release branch. The bug has been discovered because of test case.

-- TWiki:Main.SopanShewale - 19 Jan 2009

This issue was more than the listed above.


%SEARCH{ "MyTopic" scope="topic" nonoise="on" format="   * <nop>$topic has formfield(Testsample) = $formfield(Testsample)$n()"}%
was also expanding values of TestSample field.

This is being worked out ...waiting for the release.

-- TWiki:Main.SopanShewale - 20 Jan 2009

This is fixed in 4.3 branch, but bug still exists in trunk.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 26 Mar 2009

I filed Item6224 to track the trunk fix.
