Description

When I am already logged in I should not be redirected to Login page if I type in mysite.com/login. Rather WordPress should be able to decide which page I should be on in this situation.

Being redirected to Login page even when I am already logged in must be treated as a bug. The reason is I am being able to login as a different user by going to login page directly when I am already logged in!

For example if I am already logged in as admin and type in mysite.com/login I should directly be taken to wp-admin. Same decision could be taken for different user privileges like if I am logged in as a subscriber or as a participant then I might land on site's home page.

Inspired from #40762 I have modified the decider so that WordPress can take this decision itself and stop landing logged in users to login page.
