Looks like it's the infamous admin 'loop' on the adminsitrator login page. I thought this bug was fixed. So annoying, anyone have same issue with 1.6.3?

Luckily I had a backup of the site.. so I just moved the other one over and deleted the one I could not access, very frustrating. If I didn't have a backup I'd have to rebuild the whole thing
