I've had this same problem since upgrading to the same build, here is what
fixed it for me:
There are two different checkboxes that govern automatic sign in(they should
both cause they same behavior but don't-MS bug please fix-), the one under
the "Tools" -"Options" - "Sign In" menu did not work for me and then the
other one, which I stumbled across is on the sign in screen. You have to
click the drop down arrow to the right of the Sign in as: status options to
show the additional menu options of "Remember me", "Remember my password",
and "Sign me in automatically". Checking the "Sign me in automatically"
checkbox got it working for me. Now Live Messenger 14.0.8050.1202 is back to
it previous behavior of automatically signing me in when it starts up.
Hope this helps!
