Description of problem:
Testing initial-setup with a new user. The dialog box to add accounts comes up fine. I selected facebook, didn't enter any details and clicked cancel. At this time, it crashed.
Going to create another account and confirm this behaviour.

Reproduced this again. Steps:
- Create new user
- Logout and in as new user
- in g-i-s, reach "add accounts" step
- Click "add"
- Select owncloud/facebook/flickr/windows-live/exchange/other (anything other than google apparently)
- Do nothing, click cancel
- Accounts list dialog disappears and g-i-s crashes
seen in f20 live RC5 desktop x86_64 also
(D/L from Koji)
In VirtualBox install after reboot and in g-i-s; clicked on add account (facebook) then [cancel] button
got same error and behavior
on power off/reboot; login g-i-s reappears and finishes. No damage seems to have occurred to install
Has this been filed upstream? If not, can someone do so? It's usually a good idea for GNOME bugs.
During the Gnome initial setup process, on the Online Accounts page, click the "Add account" button and Cancel without adding any account. This will kill the gnome-initial-setup process.
reason: Process /usr/libexec/gnome-initial-setup was killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
runlevel: N 5
This has been fixed upstream, but the fix has not made it downstream, I don't believe. It would be nice if it could. Proposing as a Final freeze exception (initial-setup bugs can't be fixed post-release, naturally).
FWIW, I found a different way to hit this crash, described in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=719458 .

Discussed at 2013-12-02 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-12-02/f20-blocker-review-%234.2013-12-02-17.02.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue as a bug that obviously can't be easily fixed post-install, gives a bad user experience, and is relatively easy to hit.
gnome-initial-setup-22.214.171.124-4.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
