Haven't seen that before. Well, first thing that stands out to me is that you
shouldn't need the Limit/Script lines, do I'd get rid of them.
You can get the 403 if you don't have cookies working right.
Which version of Review Board are you using, and which browser?
Most browsers have built-in development tools now, and you should be able to
see the network activity. Can you find that, bring it up, and then reproduce
it? You should be able to see the headers and the request/responses. If you can
provide all these, it'd help me narrow it down.
