Redirect to back_url or referer when clicking "Sign in" while already logged-in
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|

I subscribe to my activity view via activity.atom (using feedly). Links to e.g. wiki pages or commits are in the form https://my.site/redmine/login?back_url=https%3A%2F%2Fmy.site%2Fredmine%2Fprojects%2Fmyproject%2Frepository%2Frevisions%2F3hash
I work in the 2.4-stable branch, but looking at the code it seems that trunk has the same issue.
When clicking on these links (or pasting them to the browser), accounts#login is executed. If I am already logged in, this executes
redirect_to home_url (app/controllers/account_controller.rb:37) and I end up on the Redmine start page (/redmine). The
back_url parameter is ignored.
