I registered as a new user. Then I went to "submit data" link, put a file name into the box and pressed "continue." The site correctly told me that I didn't have certification (though this should have been done earlier, see bug 2476). Then it prompted me to login. I didn't login, but went somewhere else with the links on that page. Then when I tried to login another time, it forwarded me to or something similar and there was a tomcat error saying the bean "email" couldn't be found. That is probably needed for, but regardless, I should not have been sent there from the second login attempt, but rather to the homepage.

this no longer results in an error screen, because the bug 2476 is fixed. Still, it is disorienting to get forwarded to a page that you weren't expecting.

I have a potential solution to this, if I can only figure out how to wrestle struts into submission. If I can add a field to the form, such that I can both populate its value and get that value from the LogonAction, it would be fairly simple to disallow forwarding when someone just clicks the "login" button, which is a different wrapper page than when someone tries to do something, but doesn't have permission. I shall have to talk with Chad about how to do this, as all my efforts have met with "invalid field" and "no getter method for blahblahblah."

This is a mere annoyance, and it no longer breaks anything. The user does get logged in, just forwarded to the wrong screen if they tried to access some advanced feature first.
