Fwiw I see exactly the same behavior in my oneiric box, the last few lines from the log (with --debug) are:

Fwiw, Michael Terry just helped me to find a workaround. Its to use http instead of https in the ubuntuone url. That of course it not ideal as all the data transfer is unencrypted.

Ok, the workaroud seems to be to just edit the server field, he http/https seems to be not relevant. Editing it make the button sensitive again.

Michael is correct. You can delete and retype the trailing slash '/' of the address in the server field to make the 'Save' button clickable.
