I'd rather opt for Drupal to display a message along the lines of 'You
can't register an account because you're already logged in.', instead
of an equally confusing redirect. Secondly, I'd like to see
consistency: If you're logged in now, and try to request a new
password, Drupal will give you a 403 as well.

Any user, even the administrator gets this user access error when he is
already logged in.
This causes confusion for users who are already logged in, instead it
should redirect the user to the user page.

Agree, I have the same problem with 4.6.2.
