RSS feed links broken when signed in

The RSS links for the forums seems to have changed (from rss.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=feed.ForumsBeta&forumid=blah to forums.arcgis.com/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=blah) so I started updating them in my feedreader. All good, until I signed in to my ESRI Global Account...

For example, for this subforum (Resource Center Site Feedback), the RSS link is http://forums.arcgis.com/external.php?type=RSS2&forumids=81
If I am not signed in, it works as expected.  If I am signed in, my feedreader tells me the link is broken and is returning malformed XML.  So I tried entering the RSS URL in a browser. If not signed in, I get correct RSS XML displayed in my browser window. If I am signed in, I get the 'thank you for logging in' message instead, in an infinite loop (i.e, redirects to the RSS URL over and over and over).
Redirecting...

Thank you for logging in, lpinner.
