Item14527: TopicStubAgent does not clear TEXT when an existing topic is replaced by a stub
Current State: Being Worked On
Released In: n/a
Line 85 establishes a topic object. When the topic exixsts, it will have $text. This should be cleared because the topic is replaced by a stub.

It's been a while, but I have finally worked out that the observed behavior is the desired behavior. If the destination topic exists, TopicStubAgent
merges the stub fields with the existing topic. This is consistent with the behavior of TopicAgent
To modify the behavior, I propose to add a switch:
to the parameter list of TopicStubAgent
and update TopicStubAgent
to do a Topicsave , instead of a save, removing the text as it does so.
