I don't know exactly why, but after OpenID Login the user is always redirected to the Backend, no 
matter what Interface was selected. You can try this, when you select FE as interface and provide 
your OpenID as username (leave password blank).
As long as this does not work (/is not supported) we should keep the Interface selector hidden when 
loging in with OpenID.
I'm not to deep in the code of the authentification stuff, so no idea what exactly goes wrong there.
Odd thing..

Good improvement

I'm ok with that

I do not get the idea behind this yet. If nothing is changed then the cookie already holds the right 
value or is empty for default selection.
Since this is very minor, I still give my +1 for it. You can decide wether to include "blur" or not.

Thanks for your efforts!

Kind regards,
