Anybody else, feeling this way?
You may have a point.
But, if the user is already registered and clicks this link, he can
still have the message and the user page below. This way you let him
know that he is in a 404 and save him a click of having to go back to
the user pages.

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.

i needed relatively long to find out why this happens.

the behavour was theoretically implemented but hook_menu() denied it...

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.
