screenshot of package branching bug with invalid input

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/535.1 (KHTML,
like Gecko) Chrome/13.0.782.109 Safari/535.1

The form for branching a project doesn't seem to validate inputs and therefore
when invalid input given (eg. empty fields/not-existing projects/packages) it
goes straight to "OBS Web Interface Error" page. The error details on the page
say - <error code: 404> and <message: unknown action> .
Screenshot added.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open/Create a project.
2. Open the "Packages" tab.
3. Open link "Branch package from other project".
4. Enter any false data.
Actual Results:
A flash message appears as expected to tell that entered data was not accepted
but the content div is replaced with "OBS Web Interface Error".

Expected Results:
A flash message should appear to notify the user. The form with details for new
package branch should remain on screen, maybe the incorrect fields could get
cleaned from input.

Browser: any
Tested on: 1)
2) obs-server.x86_64-2.2.90-Build1.4-vmx.tar.bz2
