Originally in this post,

And there's another bug in this forum. On one computer both from IE7 and Firefox being asked to provide an "account key" and being naggingly told "Unhandled Exception". No field to enter that in the sign on screen. The caches are clear.

I checked that out and am in the same situation as Sekerob. Upon logging out I couldn't log back in, no matter what I tried. (Luckily my IE6 was still logged in, posting with that)

I emailed David about it, he'd best fix it. It being weekend and the time difference of 9 hours can hamper things for now, though. So whatever you do, do not log out!

:-D

I tried logging in from IE6 and I got "You must supply an account key", but no "unhandled exception".

No the error is "Unable to handle request, you must supply an account key."

But even if you ask for your account key by email and click the link that's in it, you end up on the same page "Unable to handle request, you must supply an account key." .. a sort of vicious circle, really. ;-)

The log in bug is now fixed. You can all happily log off and log back in again.
Without the account key being needed, I might add. :-)
