I have a client using TWiki 5.1.3 (unfortunately, on an Internal site).

I've been noticing odd behaviour from some of the Oops templates.

e.g. right now, I've hit an editing conflict. That's normal enough. But the alert text isn't normal. Where I expect to see the name of the user who is editing, it gives the elapsed time.

It looks like the wrong field is being picked for a printf, i.e. param2 is being printed where param1 should be chosen.

The URL:


The Alert screen:

Earlier today, a mis-installed app complained that it couldn't find its template topic. But the topic name it gave was the name of the desired output topic, not the name defined for the templatetopic variable.
