When I use the attribute exchange settings from the OpenId sample, and try to login to Yahoo, the login fails and I get the following in the log files.

2009-12-18 10:46:05,958 WARN [] - Count parameter present for alias: email; should use email.[index] format
2009-12-18 10:46:05,959 DEBUG [] - Authentication request failed: Consumer error

If I remove the "count='2'" attribute, Yahoo login succeeds. If I try to login to Google (with "count='2'" there or not there), it succeeds.

The difference in behaviour between Google and Yahoo maybe related to Google understanding "" attributes and Yahoo not.

Please provide information on the configuration you were using and clarify why you think this is a bug in Spring Security, rather than a problem between the Openid4Java provider and the Yahoo implementation.
