The Accounts tab is protected to avoid confusion if people accidentally try to close it.
I had figured out a complicated way to work around this, and then thought of another by editing yet another file. I'll spare you the details. Here's the easiest solution: Click on the accounts/cuentas tab and then select View->Rename page. You can then give the page any name you like. If you rename it to "Accounts" it's back at the Gnucash default in English.
