When you use MediaWiki not in the English mode, a return address ending with "OpenIDFinish" causes Auth_OpenID_FAILURE.
Although redirecting address from an OpenID provider includes "OpenIDFinish", the current OpenID extension makes redirection to another alias (international) URL before validating the original address.
In Japanese, the address from an OpenID provider includes "index.php?title=%E7%89%B9%E5%88%A5:OpenIDFinish", which redirected to "index.php?title=%E7%89%B9%E5%88%A5:OpenID%E5%AE%8C%E4%BA%86" before its validation.
In french version we've got the same problem, because the OpenIDFinish url contains the international alias "Spécial" with an accentuated character.
Mass maintainer change.
marked as duplicate. The present bug is most likely caused by the same underlying problem: OpenID extension and/or php-openid library do stall in case of OpenID uris with non-ASCII characters.
