> Single sign-on is the ability to use a single set of credentials to
access multiple services. This works by having a single Identify Provider
that hosts your credentials and a number of Service Providers that exchange
encrypted messages with the Identity Provider in order to validate your
identity when you connect. OpenID is the underlying protocol that
implements this exchange of messages in a standard way so that any OpenID
Service Provider can accepts credentials from any OpenID Identity Provider.
In the context of Ubuntu, U1 is an OpenID Service Provider (and presumably
Identity Provider too) so can accept OpenID authentication messages to
validate your identity.
> So, assuming my explanation above was clearer than mud and with it in
mind, what probably happens is that the browser attempts to authenticate
with the service using OpenID. For some reason, the service has an issue
with the way the OpenID request is sent or with its content. Entering your
password and everything gives the service enough info to identify you and
allow you to connect.

system should have a sensible fallback like sending you to the
authentication page.

that it meant I had not yet created an open id account, so I put a password
in etc etc and  that seemed to do the trick. I think that having a U1 sign
on is not quite the same as also having a open id (also known as single
sign on, I think.....)

So, a reporable bug to ubuntu-one?
