many thanks for the fix!

Works great with the current svn version, but with 2.7.1 I unfortunately
get an 'Could not insert term into the database' error when trying to
add a non-uniquely named category from the categories view (first I
replaced the changed functions and snippets only, then all three files,
same outcome on both ways).

But I'll try to figure it out myself, so thanks again!
