We have studied a superconducting/ferromagnetic hybrid system in which the normal to superconducting phase transition is controlled by the magnetic history. An anomalous transverse resistance appears at the phase transition, which shows magnetic hysteresis and a strong current dependence. We show that the anomaly originates from current redistributions due to the inhomogeneous superconductivity of this system.
