Hi, all, but probably just Scott,

Wondering if someone can tell me what the below indicates. We've got a professor who has been reporting intermittent login issues. Today, after incorrectly entering his password the first time according to the logs, he re-typed it and clicked log in again 21 seconds later. The result, rather than another attempt to validate his password against our password store, was this:

2019-05-22 15:38:10,203 - ERROR [org.springframework.webflow.execution.repository.FlowExecutionRestorationFailureException:76] [session=15j1zxrkhqnijlxpq502nr462] [ip=] -

I'm used to seeing no such flow exceptions, but not flow restoration exceptions. What does it mean, and what can cause it?
