Issue with Live ID Authentication on couple of Web Applications


I created a couple of Web Applications and want to have Live ID Authentication for each of it. I made all the steps from documentation. When I made the first Web Application with Live ID Authentication it worked well, but when I made another Web Application and set Live ID Authentication for it I can not access to the first Web Application.
How can I make this Live ID Authentication workable for a couple Web Applications on the same WSS installation?

I've got the same issue - the first web app configured for Live ID authentication starts rejecting access for proper users once the second web app on the same farm gets configured with Live ID.

Update. Found a workaround. There's a bug in the code that removes some of the membership and role provider configuration from the first app's WEB.CONFIG when configuring the second one. Simply backup the WEB.CONFIG of the first app, configure the second one, and restore the backed config file on the first app. Seems to be working fine that way.
