#8163 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

After quick edit of a post, trying to go to edit screen leads to login infinite loop

This is a strange bug, but it appears to be reproducible in [9621] 2.7-bleeding, with all plugins turned off. How to reproduce:

a) Go to the Posts edit screen (wp-admin/edit.php).

b) Click "Quick Edit" on a post, change a post title, and click Save.

c) Click "Edit" on the same post. Instead of going to the Post Edit screen, you end up at wp-login.php, with ?redirect_to going to wp-admin/post.php?action=edit&post=IDNUM . But if you try to log in (repeatedly), it just pops back to wp-login.php, with no message about passwords etc.

d) At this point, you can give up, type in the URL wp-admin and go back to your dashboard. You are still logged in.

If you reload the Post Edit list screen between (b) and (c), there is no problem editing.

If you do Quick Edit on one post, and then Edit on a different post, there is no problem either.

Was working for me in 9600 and 9630.

Tested in IE7 and Opera.

Works well for me too. Probably js/caching problem. Feel free to reopen and if you can, note the url of the Edit link if this keeps happening.
