When a user interface throws an AccessControlException this will be caught in TWiki::UI and results in

a redirect to an oops. The topic in the exception is not used though - the access violation is seemingly reported

for the topic that was last viewed using the current session.

We observe this when TWikiUserRegistration submits to /twiki/bin/register to register a user but

the register scripts fails to store the email information in the freshly instantiated user topic, e.g., for

user 'JohnDoe'. The AccessControlException is thrown for topic 'JohnDoe' (I verified this) but

the oops displayed is for Main.TwikiUserRegistration.

I have not found a fix yet but it seems to me that TWiki::OopsException::redirect() should manipulate the

session and use its web and topic before calling $session->redirect().
