When I switch from a normal public SE site to area 51 I am not automatically logged in.
Moreover, the Area 51 page is displayed with some text based formatting, but without frames or pictures. Or, if I do get a normally rendered page, my next click to log-in, or to another page on Area 51 renders in the weird formatted text only mode (see pictures below).
Trying to log in from the non grapichs based page by entering

manually enter your openID feild produces the error:
Unable to log in with your OpenID provider
I'm running Linux Mint KDE 16, with chromium. The bug persists in incognito mode. And the rendering issue occasionally appears in Firefox as well; however I don't have the same log-in issues with Firefox.
Example of page displayed when visiting Area 51:
