Have a look at OpenidService.php line221 [1]:
> // We may need to send a request to the OpenID server.

> if ($this->openIDIdentifier === $userRecord['tx_openid_openid']) {

This code checks if the sanitized OpenID identifier given by the user
in the login form equals the OpenID in his database record. This means
that it is not possible to login with an endpoint URL.

And yes, I move the code up in the file - this has the effect that the
checks are done later, after the OpenID login process happened.
