I can't figure out why I sometimes get the following error message. Most of the time everything works fine. I may get this message, and try the same operation in a minute and it works. So there should actually be no problems with my account.

The error occurs because of a bad url -- notice that &user=admin occurs twice in the url.

This sounds like a bug we fixed. (It's bug number 715 ) and it was fixed in version 1.23 of (Sometime last February.)

Is your version of WeBWorK up to date with the current CVS?

It's possible that it is a new bug, but I'm hoping not.

We have 1.23, so either is was fixed later, or there is something else wrong.

"cvs status" output:
