[IP Login] unable to access last used admin page after user session expires

If I login with my URL key and my session expires, Joomla redirects me to the homepage once I click a link in the admin console (expected behavior). If I login again with my secret key, I can use the admin console as usual, until I go to the admin menu item that I clicked in my expired session: it immediately redirects me to the homepage.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install IP Login plugin (latest, free version), configure it for the user.
2. Login with secret URL key and go to a random admin page, e.g. /administrator/index.php?option=com_content.
3. Do nothing / wait till the session expires.
4. Try to navigate to another admin page, e.g. /administrator/index.php?option=com_search ; Joomla will redirect the request to the homepage (as it should).
5. Log in again with the URL key.
6. Navigate to the previous admin page, in this example /administrator/index.php?option=com_search.
7. Joomla will redirect the request to the homepage (as it should NOT).

It looks like I cannot reproduce this issue without IP login installed, disabled, or with IP login plugin enabled but not configured for the user.

See what urls are generated in the admin menu when loading this url in the browser (after logging in):
