MVC3 with Windows Authentication Redirected to Account/Login

I was deploying my MVC3 application into a production that did not have the proper DLLs in the GAC.  So I used the handy little tool in Visual Studio that allows you to include the DLLs in the BIN folder.  Simply right-click on the project in Visual Studio and select Add Deployable Dependencies.

But when I deployed the project into production, it kept attempting to redirect me to Account/Login, which does not exist.  And I have not routed those values anywhere.

It turns out that the WebMatrix.Data.dll was copied into my BIN directory and into production.  This DLL is the culprit.  I removed all instances of this DLL from my project, and the issue went away.
