No idea just stabbing in the dark at this point. Never seen it do that before.

comment Is there a way to run a python script on opening a QGIS project?
+1 Marcos are the way to go. If you have a lot of code I would suggest putting it in it's own .py file next to the project and importing it from openProject rather then putting lots of logic in the blocks. Makes it easier to test and debug.

Your case statement/s are a bit malformed. I'm surprised they even work at all. The correct statement should be CASE WHEN condition THEN result ELSE result2 WHEN condition THEN result ELSE result2 WHEN condition THEN result ELSE result2 WHEN condition THEN result ELSE result2 END Only one CASE and END` keyword.

comment Does QGIS have the equivalent of ArcGIS's Layer (*.LYR) file?
No because Save As.. is a create new file operation, Save is overwrite a current you have open. We never keep a .qlr file open so there is no reference.

This will work for vector and raster, including WMS, etc. It doesn't work with a OpenLayers layer for example.

If someone was happening to be implementing said feature what would you want the file extrusion to be? ;)

We (QGIS) are currently toying with a similar idea. Not hard to do I don't think.
