    Hi everyone,
    when I change the topic of a post, the post slug won't change according to the topic changing.
    (Just in case, its a new thing, I'm not familiar with the bug system)

    Well, yes... I think it is willingly so: this way your permalinks really are permanent. If after two weeks you change a post title, old bookrmarks can't possibly reflect that change. By staying the same, the slug allows this.
    There could be good arguments for a slug reflecting title changes too, though. if really you would like that, you can always change it manually, but be careful with popular posts already linked to from elsewhere.
