Item6168: _load on WebNotify.pm extracting TopicName Incorrectly

When I run MailNotify, specific topic subscriptions are ignored and MailNotify prints out an asterisk for the topics and sends everything.

it seems that line 349 of lib/TWiki/Contrib/MailerContrib/WebNotify.pm:

 my $topics = $3;

should read

 my $topics = $2;

as $2, from the look of the Regular Expression, seems that the list of topics would be the second match. A quick glance at 4.2.4 shows the code handled differently:

 my $topics = $+;

Which may fix the bug, but I haven't made an effort to examine it.
