logout slow and confusing error message "Cannot log out now: http"
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

As reported at Enwiki's VPT (permalink)

I was trying to log out one day but the step was slow. It said, "You are being logged out, please wait". Then it said, "Cannot log out now: http". Eventually I was logged out.
Why so long? Does it mean that I must have been using a slow network? If I close my browser while waiting, is that good enough?

In discussion in IRC, a dev noted that:

I'm filing a task

  • in case it's a security problem
  • in case it comes up again
  • in case the error message can be improved/clarified
