 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    theme system

 Status:       patch

While this patch would allow a theme to be placed directly in the
"themes" directory, it disables the ability for that theme to use a
"style.css" file, which is inconsistent. I would prefer a patch that
enforces the criteria that themes MUST be placed in a SUBDIRECTORY of
"themes" -- themes placed directly in the "themes" folder should be
ignored... maybe we could send the admin a drupal_set_message that
would tell them about the problem when visiting admin/themes too.

Try putting a .theme file into themes/ without any subdir. Enable it
(maybe just saving theme settings is enough), Nothing will work after
this. To restore your site: remove the offending theme, issue an SQL:
DELETE FROM {system} WHERE type='theme' and save theme settings again.

effects HEAD, too.

Here is a patch which fixes the problem. However, I do not have the
feeling that this is "the" solution. Feel free to come up with
something better.

Oops forgot to set to CVS, 'cos the fix is against HEAD. Not that 4.5.2
does not need a patch...
