We actually have a problem right now logging in to test2 as Selenium_user
and using subsequent pages.  Use mediawiki.org for now and either Zeljko or
I will shout when we have login working again on test2.

Sorry for the inconvenience, this is actually part of a whole different
project:  http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Auth_systems/SUL2#Redirect_on_Login
