I can't reproduce this issue, can you see if it happens on all pages or a specific one ?

It looks like clearing my cookies eliminates that behavior, until I log into ohai.

Clearing the cookies or logging out eliminates the behavior, on both Chromium and Iceweasel. Once you log back in though, that behavior returns.

Thanks for the useful info! The guest workflow was restricted to guest users, so it would redirect to "/" if you were logged in. this is a side effect of the new feature I added last time to allow seeing the guest workflow even if logged in instead of the "begin job" interface.
It should be fixed now, and I've updated it on the server as well.
