Can't create a user

Eek, that's no good.  It appears that we should have better error handling for this.  

My first thought is that the proxy is not configured for your Riak CS hostname in the riak-cs-control configuration file.  Can you verify that the app.config contains the same proxy configuration as the app.config for your Riak CS installation?
