I'm amazed you have to cover Androsace studiosorum with glass in winter as it poses no problem at all in the open here in wet N. Wales, but maybe our severe exposure to the prevailing winds on a mountainside means that plants do not lie wet for as long here as they do in a relatively sheltered garden like yours?

I think this has changed here. I grew it for years in the '70's uncovered in a trough without any trouble (not in the same garden but only a few hundred metres away), but having lost it through winter rot twice (not the same clone), I always cover it now. Interestingly, both A. sempervivoides and A. mucronifolia do well in the same set of troughs without cover.
