Summary0027595: invalid selected default project leads to infinite redirecting loop, when bug_report_page is requested

For some occasions when the default project for a user is invalid (eg they had access to it, set it as default project and then lost access) and they are trying to report a bug while "all projects" is selected. the bug report page runs into an redirecting loop.

this can also happen, when an admin changes the user's prefs since in the list for default projects all projects are listed (maybe those where the admin has access?). there can easily be an invalid project selected

tested in 2.24.1 and 2.24.0

questionable lines in the code for teh infinite loop:

bug_report_page.php lines 140 - 150

if( ( ALL_PROJECTS == $t_project_id || project_exists( $t_project_id ) )
        && $t_project_id != $t_current_project
        && project_enabled( $t_project_id ) ) {
        helper_set_current_project( $t_project_id );
        # Reloading the page is required so that the project browser
        # reflects the new current project
        print_header_redirect( $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], true, false, true );
