That solution has not worked for me.
I had this issue when I setup, but it would save the additions, so it was annoying (3 gmail accounts and a facebook account) but after the 4 quick boots, I was ready to roll.
Just tried it, I am running the 2.0.3 and dont recall it being an issue on either previous ROMs. I would completely revert back to stock and start over completely, deleting /data if you have to.
I dont have the standard gmail issue that some have. I have tried every setting menu and only the accounts and sync option reboots my phone each and everytime. I guess I will have to completely wipe the phone. Wiping the phone wont delete anything stored on the SD card, will it?
