There is a file in ~/.kde/share/config/ called systemsettingsrc

I think it had been corrupted because there was an additional Height and Width 
entry above the [MainWindow] section. I renamed this file to hide it, started 
System Settings again and now the user manager section works - I can get into 
the add user section.

There is now a new systemsettingsrc file in which everything is in order 
(there's only three lines :-) ).
