I have discovered the cause for this.
You are using a proxy with an autoconfiguration URL (PAC script) which
has got a syntax error in it (as far as WebKit is concerned)
When you run the add account it calls signon-ui and it segfaults because
If you use konqueror you may also experience problems. In my case, it
takes a very long time to load pages, like almost a minute long.
If you can, temporarily disable your proxy, or if you cannot connect
without proxy, try manually setting the address of the proxy (not the
PAC stript), for the duration of adding the account.
Once the account has been added, signon-ui isn't needed, and the proxy
settings can be re-instated.
