I just tried renaming a bunch of attachments to a topic, and I did it by opening multiple browser tabs and then renaming them all simultaneously. The result was that the %META:FILEATTACHMENT line in the topic for all attachments but the last was removed. All the attachments renamed successfully, and I was able to use UpdateAttachmentsPlugin to restore the %META:FILEATTACHMENT lines.

interesting point - there is some need for same user locking, or something to prevent this kind of unexpected use :/

How about a bulk rename feature? That would deter this kind of use.

We still need a fix for the multiple window case. No normal user can guess that doing what you did can cause trouble
