### CSRF token missing or incorrect

When I try to change the skin for Askbot, I get the following error:

Forbidden (403)

CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.
Reason given for failure:
CSRF token missing or incorrect.

This puts me in a catch 22 situation whereby I need to change the skin to fix the error, but without fixing the error I can't change the skin. Can anyone tell me how to get round this?

Edit: I'm using the default skin. I don't know which templates are used in the settings interface. I would prefer a solution that didn't involve editing the default skin templates as those changes would be harder to maintain.
