The problem appears in TYPO3 6.2, too. So please fix that in both versions.

Backend now also has the token: http://7.6.0.local.typo3.org/typo3/index.php?route=%2Fmain&token=eebb5814a48a449e2cfa4a71f05d413053fd70bb

So fully reloading the backend will not solve the error in latest releases.

You need to strip off the token in order to get it to work.
