Hitting a URL when not-logged-in gives a misleading error message.

Bug #965810 reported by John Postlethwait on 2012-03-26

Bug Description

The error message is: Error: You are not authorized to access ... The ACTUAL problem is that they are not yet logged in, not that there is (necessarily) an issue with authorization. There might be, but that check happens when someone is logged in, not before.

    User needs to log in messages.

    When a user tries to access a page and they are
    not logged in, the message needs to be about
    authentication, NOT authorization as it was before
    this change. Needing to log in has nothing to do
    with permissions and the messaging needs to
    reflect that.

    Fixes Bug #965810
