Google can change your openid without a notice, what you can do is to sign in with some different method,then go to your profile and click "manage login methods", you'll get to the screen similar to the initial login screen, but there you can add/fix/remove your login methods.

If this does not work for you, then there must be some bug indeed (however I use google login all the time and it works for me).

edit: I'll test all the login methods shortly on the new installation and try to fix any issues, sorry for the troubles.

edit 2: I've tried all the current openid providers (note Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are using OAuth protocol, which is different form OpenID) and have following results

  • work as expected: google, yahoo, aol, livejournal, claimid, verisign
  • do not work: flickr (now part of yahoo), technorati, vidoop (ackquired by other business)
  • unknown: wordpress, blogger - they require to create a blog and I did not want to.

I think I'll drop the login icons for those methods that patently do not work.
