Not sure what is going on there.  Maybe you can't write to you home
directory?  Of course, it doesn't make sense to add buddies if you
haven't created any accounts yet.

I expect what behavior you see this depends what platform you are on.
On my Gnome Linux box the icon in the task bar changes and the text on
the account tab in the chat window changes color.  As I remember the
Windows behavior is very similar.
