If you launch browser after that, you should get authorization requested dialog from firefox, and (following entry of correct username/password) get redirected back to dashboard.

I'll change this, add a notation about the additional bugzilla for ipa-rewrite, possibly add session expires, and re-post this patch later today.

Thanks for testing it!
