    Description

      Mongo does not allow the creation of collections with an empty string as the name, but it is possible to rename an existing collection to "".

      To reproduce:

      > db[""].save(

      {x:2}

      ) // it is not possible to create a new collection with an empty string as the name
      invalid ns: test.
      > db.getCollection("").save(

      {x:2}

      )
      invalid ns: test.
      > db.test.save(

      {x:2}

      ) // it is possible to rename an existing collection to an empty string
      > db.test.renameCollection("")

      { "ok" : 1 }

      > db[""].find()

      { "_id" : ObjectId("4ede683f5833a9b2c91c8dc0"), "x" : 2 }
