Actually, this bug is much less likely to occur than the description indicates because the second unsub attempt will only throw the exception if the user has a list admin authentication cookie. If the user had originally authenticated only as the user, the second attempt will fail for lack of authentication.

But I fixed it anyway before realizing this.
