# error when renaming a page with existing link (NameError: global name 'sre' is not defined)

Reported by: Owned by: vadim@… Noah Kantrowitz high WikiRenamePlugin critical 0.11

### Description

Tried renaming a page, unsuccessfylly. Got the following error:

Trac detected an internal error:
NameError: global name 'sre' is not defined


I'll try to reproduce the trace here (can't directly cut/paste, unfortunately):

.../python2.5/site-packages/Trac-0.11dev_r6049-py2.5.egg/trac/web/main.py:381 in dispatch_request
.../python2.5/site-packages/Trac-0.11dev_r6049-py2.5.egg/trac/web/main.py:191 in dispatch
.../build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/wikirename/util.py:85 in rename_page


Note that this seems to happen when there's an existing link that needs to be updated. That is, if there's an existing link of the form  [wiki:OldName blah blah] . Renaming seems to work fine with links like  [OldName blah blah]  and  OldName , but if I understand correctly, the latter two are simply not recognized as links by this plugin. Changing the link style does not always help (it helped in a test page I created, but not in the original culprit page).
