Unable to log in to progress.opensuse.org

I recently received a response to a very old ticket (#128708) at https://progress.opensuse.org, and want to see the context at the website. However, when I attempt to log in, all I see is:

Any idea what causes this, and what to do to remediate it? I can’t imagine that I’ve somehow broken the LDAP system.

@rokejulianlockhart you used your openSUSE ID to login?

@malcolmlewis, yes. The credentials for openSUSE Login and Missing cookie, etcetera.

The problem is your email address not matching, maybe you changed it in the IDP system at some point.
I corrected it now, please try it again. If it still does not work, create a ticket for it through admin@opensuse.org.

@crameleon, it indeed works now. Thank you.

Was the fault mine? I ask because it appears that I’m able to modify the e-mail address at https://progress.opensuse.org/my/account, so maybe user_mail should be disabled to prevent mismatch?

It’s definitely not good for it to use the email as the mapping attribute. But patching it would likely cause some regressions.
Disabling the field sounds like a good intermediate solution, but is currently not possible natively (Feature #33216: /my/account: Prevent users from changing their Email [redmine 4.1.0 stable] - Redmine) and still leaves room for breakage if the email address is changed on the IDP side (through idp-portal.suse.com).
