Looking better at it, it *seems* easier, as the only time we need to
use PRG is when the account modification succeeds. However, to send a
Location header, we still have to suppress output until the point the
change succeeds or errors out.

Also, leaving it the way it is, i.e., keeping this bug present, is not
nice for the user who first decides to change their username and then
wants to change other info, too. Their first attempt to do the second
step, by clicking on 'My Account' again, will fail with a 404.

Best, Marcel
