Error in line 3

Some websites report an error in line 3 when using the controls such as login. We recently tracked this error down on one of our sites to the use of custom HttpHandlers.

All requests to anything other than *.aspx were routing through our own handler..

Adding the following to the web.config fixed the problem

<add path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET" type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" validate="True" />
