Error Viewing Plugin Settings after Login #1206

An error occurs when navigating directly to settings page for a particular plugin after login.

The real cause is that the because the user is not authenticated on the first attempt to view the settings page a 401 error is thrown. The error formatter detects the route has a content type of text/html. The html error formatter then modifies the handle property of the themed route. This value is passed by reference and is therefore mutated by the error handler. When this happens all future requests then attempt to use the handler set by the error formatter which is incorrect and does not exist causing the error to occur. A big thanks to @lgenet for reporting this and tracking down the root cause.

error: System[2]: uncaught Exception detected : TypeError: req.controllerInstance[(intermediate value)(intermediate value)(intermediate value)] is not a function
