Subject: Undeletable garbage nodes on london.openguides.org

If you view the list of all pages in Category Locale: http://london.openguides.org/?action=index;index_type=category;index_value=Locales

The first page is "Locale", which doesn't exist(?) - and I can't delete it. Also, further down is "Locale [Trafalgar Square;version=2", which was created a while back by somebody's web robot going beserk, before we disabled autocreation. I tried to delete it, but didn't notice that the Delete Node link pointed to http://london.openguides.org/index.cgi?id=Home;action=delete , and ended up deleting "Home" by mistake. Whoops.

This seems to be related to RT 6389; certainly there's something amiss with the delete function. Maybe some characters not being escaped properly?

Did anything ever happen with this?

"Locale [Trafalgar Square;version=2" is still there, and I still can't get rid of it (IIRC, I left it there on purpose as a test case rather than fudging the database directly).

Incidentally, this bug has exposed a security problem that lets us get spammed. Look for "Locale Hello Guys, Interesting Discussion... BTW What You Think About Fight Against Alcohols And Drugs Detox" - the second half of that title in the list of locales is a working hyperlink to another site. I'd rate this as a higher severity in that light. (Although that may merit a separate sub-bug about HTML in locale/category names not being escaped [in the template?] or some such.)

Link above should be to Ticket #22 (ivorw is learning how to use the wiki effectively)
