I did.  I put it there first, then sent it to the mailing list thinking it 
(slight chance) might be an issue with CMF or Zope, rather than Plone.

>a huge difference between Plone and CMF is Plone uses base href.

Okay, I'm lacking some knowledge somewhere.  If Plone uses base hrefs, then 
I'm assuming CMF uses absolute hrefs instead, e.g. from 
CMFDefault/skins/content_publish_form.pt, tal:attributes="action 
string:$(here/absolute_url)/content_status/modify".  So... (let me work it 
out :) ...in topic_editTopic, for instance, things fell apart because 
(LIGHTBULB!) the script was calling the manage_renameObject method from the 
*container* (the Plone site) rather than from the *folder* containing the 
topic.  And it would be the folder that would do the work on its subobject, 
the topic.

Would this be an accurate assessment, or did I miss something?

I will try to pull from CVS and see what results I get.

Thanks a bundle!
