1. luci installed+started, user logged into it + keeping it opened
   in the web browser (within active session timeframe)
2. install another version (perhaps even plain reinstall will do)
3. start the newly installed version (if not automatically)
4. try to continue in the previously opened session in the web browser

Login form with some links normally available only when logged in
(Homebase, Manage Clusters).  Both links, when clicked, only
lead back to login form as the linked content requires authorization.

Login form as usual (i.e., no additional links).

See attached happens/expected screenshots comparison.


The other part of ungraceful handling of package update while
trying to work with luci continuously is a backtrace in luci.log.
This (probably) arises from the fact the old SSL connection is no longer
in use, something what the web browser (specifically, Firefox) does
not like either (new round of allowing certificate exception):

Exception happened during processing of request from
  ('', 50932)

Comment 5 Jan Pokorný [poki] 2016-11-16 16:26:26 UTC
Tried hard, but cannot reproduce this bug anymore.

Comment 6 Jan Pokorný [poki] 2016-11-16 17:45:41 UTC
Huh, just managed to reproduce this, with reproducer as simple as:

1. stay at login page, perhaps came_from backlink to homebase is needed
2. restart luci
3. hit reload in the web browser

Comment 8 Jan Pokorný [poki] 2016-11-29 22:35:24 UTC
There was a bad instantiation of ClusterController.
