I would have expected that this command

would update links in Web1 that used to point to PageOne so that they now point to Web2.PageOneRenamed.

After all, if I go through the GUI (or leave out the newtopic parameter) the screen I see has all links pre-selected to be updated.

Instead, the search is apparently done (enough time goes by) but the update is NOT done.

What is the purpose of the currentwebonly parameter if the results of the search are not acted upon?

Hi Vicky- i tried on trunk (At revision 18211)

i am bit confused about your writeup - are you saying

"Why two select options [1] Change links in topics that refer to xxxxx in the xxcurrentxx Web: [2] Change links in topics that refer to xxcurrentxx.xxxxx in any Web:" are displayed

if you go for "Rename/move topic... scans links in xxcurrentxx web only" option

The selection option [2] has cost of search operation to find links through all topics from all public webs
