gmail bug ?

I wanted to created (yet) another gmail account

So, I went to my usual account and sent an invite to my yahoo account. At yahoo mail, I clicked on the link in the invite email. This brought me to another tab (in firefox) and I entered my details and submitted the form. I was taken to the gmail welcome page.

Then I clicked on the “Ready : take me to my inbox” and when I clicked on that, i was taken to my original gmail account (from which I had sent the invite to the yahoo account) rather than the new gmail account!

Not sure if this is a security bug — if anyone from gmail(cedric, josh, …) is interested, I can give more details.
