Visiting admin/user/user/create with avatar selection 5.x-2.2 module enabled causes an immediate and silent logout of the session, making it impossible for the administrator to add new users. The work-around is to disable the avatar selection module when adding new users.

What are your avatar selection settings?


I can confirm this error ocurring with core and all modules up to date. If you disable avatar selection module, then admin can once again add new users without any problem.
