If I choose to login using OpenID, then I must login again each time I launch a new browser session. The text field doesn't even remember my OpenID URL.

I fail to see the issue. Whether or not the browser saves the form value is a browser issue (and possible a user issue, for configuring the browser appropriately), not one of Roundup.

The OpenID specification defines that Roundup should give a hint, by calling the field openid_identifier

http://openid.net/specs/openid-authentication-2_0.html#initiation

Roundup does so conformingly; if the browser than choses to not save the value, I don't think we (the round maintainers) can do anything about it.

follow-up: apparently, there are browser-specific plugins (like "OpenID for Firefox" or "OpenID Autofill" for Chrome) which you may want to used. 

As for having to relogin: I cannot reproduce this. With Chrome, the session happily survives a browser restart.

Hum, you're right, it does. Perhaps it is that the cookie has a short
lifetime. Or perhaps there was something else interfering.
