I expect that once a google+ photo account is configured I can use it during subsequent darktable sessions. Right now if I exit darktable and restart it I only have the "new account" option and the google+ photo account authorization process has to be repeated.
The easiest way to reproduce is to click "logout". The "new account" remains even adter successful authentication and operations.

darktable uses your systems password storage backend (gnome keyring or kwallet) to save this login data. You need to configure and activated the password storage backend within the preferences. It is not active by default! Please check if that is true in your case and report back.

Yes, but that will only benefit new installs. Pre-existing installs will still have to configure pwstorage manually.
Also the current implementation is rather crude, so it will work for the majority of use-cases. But it might fail on more obscure Linux desktop setups.
