We have the following error if a user registers to one event and then registers to another:

An error has occurred: You have Entered an email address did matches an existing user account in our system If this is your email address, please log in before continuing your registration.. Otherwise, register with a different email address.

See screenshot:

For all events, the force login for registrations is set as NO.

Why else could this be happening?
