If you log in and then revisit the /login page, Redmine currently logs you out and requires you to log back in. I believe this is unexpected behavior, as if you do this on most websites, you're redirected as though you just logged in.

The patch attached fixes this issue explained.

Redmine 2.1.4.stable
Ruby 1.9.3
Rails 3.2.8

This issue is similar to #11847 ;however, has nothing to do with back_url and is solving the bigger problem, I think.

Does this patch redirects to the back_url param if it exists? As far as I could understand, it doesn't, and I think it should, it will be a great improvement! This problem always annoyed me, good to see it's fixed!
