      Description

      The XMLDB Editor is missing sesskey protection (thanks Petr for spotting that). While it's difficult to perform any attack based on that (mainly because of the session-based nature of the whole editor), to be 100% sure and correct the sesskey thing must be applied to all "edit" actions in the editor.

      Going to do it. Ciao
