It works fine here on image 166.
Can you please try the following: from a phablet-shell, type

    OAU_DAEMON_TIMEOUT=9999 OAU_LOGGING_LEVEL=2 online-accounts-service

and then try to create the account again. If you reproduce the problem and provide the output of the above command, that should help me understand the issue.

I updated to r166 and unfortunately on my device it's still reproduceable. I captured logs for you.

What I did to capture it:
1. "Reset phone -> Erase & Reset Everything..." to clear existing accounts data
2. After reboot, run "OAU_DAEMON_TIMEOUT=9999 OAU_LOGGING_LEVEL=2 online-accounts-service" in phablet-shell
3. Try to add Facebook account

Thanks for the logs, they are very useful. We use the "username" reply field to get the account username, but that has been removed in the facebook 2.0 API:

It still works for me, probably because I authorized our application key while the v1.0 API was still active. We should probably use the "name" field, which contains the full name of the user.
