It's getting too late here for me to jump into IRC tonight, I'm
afraid. So here's as much detail as I can give by mail...

Following a link from


, pointing at


. That redirected to


which is the page with the 403.

I think it may well be that. I couldn't remember my SSO password
(maybe 2 attempts there), so went and changed it. I tried again with
the new password a couple of times (I'm guessing before settings had
synced somewhere?), and that's when I started getting the 403
page. I'm still seeing it now if I try again from the same browser
(iceweasel). Switching to chromium a little later, I was able to log
in successfully using the new SSO password.
