New issue 3759 by Error Authenticating with Active Directory

What version are you running?
I am running ReviewBoard 2.0.12

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Setup Active Directory access, specifying only a Domain Name and a Domain Controller and leaving other Active Directory options unchecked.
2. Navigate to /account/login/
3. Type in a user name and password.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
If an incorrect username/password combo is provided, the expected message of "Please enter a correct username and password. Note that both fields may be case-sensitive." is shown. However, if a valid username/password combo is provided, "Something broke! (Error 500)" is produced. I got an email from the RB server with a stack trace, which is provided below.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
I am currently using Windows 8.1 Pro, and Google Chrome Version 40.0.2214.94 m

Please provide any additional information below.

This issue is likely a dupe of Issue 3403. Here's some relevant info that wasn't provided in that ticket.
