I recently prepped a question on a site which I had not yet created an account on. After preparing the question and clicking 'Log in', I logged in as normal, but then was prompted to create the new account. After creating the new account, I was directed to the main question list, instead of back to my question. Luckily I was able to retrieve my text using the bfcache, but it is obviously not an ideal workflow.
- Have an existing SE account.
- Without logging in, prepare a new question on a site you haven't created an account on before.
- Click the 'Log in' link displayed in the New Question form.
- Confirm creation of the account ("Confirm Your New Account" prompt).
- Get redirected to the front page of the site.
