Bug Description

After going through the new wizard, the user's "RealName" setting is still "Ubuntu" (the default).

This is because:
A) unity8 incorrectly tries to set RealName (AccountsService makes you use SetRealName, not normal dbus property setters)
B) usermod (used by AccountsService in the background) chokes on read-only /etc. It needs to be modified to handle that gracefully. (If you have a writable device image, you won't see this part)
