Inconsistent login methods

I've noticed a discrepancy in ways to log in to the site. If I log in using the "login" button at the top right of the page, I'll be taken to a screen like

Login 1

and then I'll return to the page I was navigating.

Let's suppose I wish to reply to a forum post and I'm not yet logged in. I hit the reply button and then I'm taken to a screen like

Login 2

but instead of returning to where I was I'll be returned to the home page of the site. It'd be nice to return to the page I was navigating regardless of how arrived at the log in screen.

Thanks for all the hard work you're doing to improve the site; it's much appreciated.

Thanks Dave, should be fixed now.

Thanks, Rachel. It's working now.
