There is a file in ~/.kde/share/config/ called systemsettingsrc

I think it had been corrupted because there was an additional Height and Width
entry above the [MainWindow] section. I renamed this file to hide it, started
System Settings again and now the user manager section works - I can get into
the add user section.

There is now a new systemsettingsrc file in which everything is in order
(there's only three lines :-) ).

So the only difference in the generated file and the "corrupt" (of
sorts) file is an additional height and width entry? If so, you
should definitely report that as a bug.
