Login for Google Profiles account doesn't work after joining Google+

After joining Google+, the profiles.google.com/username URL redirects to plus.google.com/[long number]/posts. When trying to log in on SO using the profiles.google.com URL, I got (line breaks for clarity):

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:

It appears that creating signing up for Google+ breaks Google Profile OpenIDs.

There's not much we can do from our end, as there's no obvious connection between the old and new identifiers.

If you intend to signup for Google+, you should use a different OpenID provider than Google Profiles. If you're already locked out, create a new account using the top-level Google login; it should be auto-merged with your existing Google Profile backed account, giving you an alternate OpenID to login with (after which, you should delete the Google Profile OpenID).

If you're still having issues, e-mail us using the contact link with the details; preferably from the Gmail account associated with your Google Profile.
