I built a login form for user to login to the web. There is a case when a user login with incorrect user name or password and he /she login again immediately that causes an internal server error.

Then I checked the system session log:


And then I checked the system exception log:


Look like the system think that the guest user logged in to the system twice in a very short period and causes a 500 internal server error.

The workaround for now is uninstall the LoginThrottle module. 

Is there any way to remedy this??

I think it's a bug, non-superusers getting 500 error.
