Classic mix between serverside and clientside scripting.
${xwiki.getURL...} is executed on the server, before the page is
displayed in the browser. url is a javascript variable, created long
after the velocity engine tried to generate the URL. I'm surprised you
didn't get a stack trace instead of the panel.

Still, this doesn't explain why you get disconnected, this should not

Try this:

     <input type="button" value="Edit"
"inline")}".replace("__topic__", this.form.topic.value);
this.form.submit();' />

This uses $xwiki.getURL to obtain a valid URL template, which uses a
placeholder (__topic__) instead of the real topic name, which in the
generated HTML appears as a string like
"/xwiki/bin/inline/Project/__topic__", and javascript replaces this
placeholder with the real value taken from the form.
