Description of problem:
Running gnome-control-center user-accounts under root results in segfault.
The crash is probably related to unlocking of dialogs in the control-settings which require root privileges.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to gnome session under root
2. run Account Settings

As per the backtrace, this is a consequence of changes from Bug 1474579 and I suppose that the following patch for accountsservice should fix it. Thus moving this bug into accountsservice component.
However, control-center may also segfault in certain cases if run under root, but I suppose that this is not a regression, but rather a long-term issue. Anyway, the patches from the following bug should fix it also. Please file another bug report if it is desired.
The crash in accountsservice is fixed. But we need to fix also the consequent crash in g-c-c to fully fix the crash when run under root. Thus moving this bug to verified and cloning it for g-c-c.
