Dashboard plugin causes white screen and loop

I have an intermittent problem when I install the WPMU Dev Dashboard plugin on this site it causes a redirect loop in the admin screen

The webpage at https://www.wpsitecommand.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpmudev&_error_nonce=57c83a6d83 has resulted in too many redirects. Clearing your cookies for this site or allowing third-party cookies may fix the problem. If not, it is possibly a server configuration issue and not a problem with your computer.

It's a new site, I've reset the theme back to the default but I'm still seeing the same behavior. I'm running ssl, and it seems like it might be related.

I removed all plugins and then added them back one at a time and now it's working again, but I have had this problem before. Do you have any idea what's happening or how to track it down. When the problem occurs removing the dashboard plugin corrects the problem.
