Opera asking for google/gmail passwords every time

  • Opera is my main browser, every time I close it and open it again it is asking me for password and authentication on all my google accounts.

    Problem details:

    • I use 2-step verification on all my google accounts.
    • I use 3 accounts mainly for gmail and my main one for other services too (youtube, google keep, etc).
    • Every google service asks me to login.
    • I started seeing this behaviour today.
    • Every other website "remembers" me.
    • Google remembers my accounts but it asks for password and 2-step code every time I restart the browser.

    System info:

    • windows 10 x64 1703 (fully updated except for 1709s)
    • Opera 51.0.2830.26
    • CPU Ryzen 7 1800X
    • ECC ram

    I was able to reproduce the problem on:

    • a freshly created USB installation, same computer and opera version.
    • a freshly created USB installation, windows 10 VM fresh 1703 no updates installed, same opera version.

    These browsers work with no problem:

    • VM Ubuntu 17.10, latest firefox and opera
    • VM macOS Sierra 10.12.5, latest opera
    • Main computer (windows), latest chrome and firefox

    I used vmware for the VMs.
