Removing file accounts.conf from ~/.config/goa-1.0 solve problem.

Yes, but accounts.conf has my accounts configuration and I need it, obviously.

Can confirm this behavior. Most probably it's the following bug

BTW. It has been already fixed in the source code. So all's needed is a new arch-linux package...
