Using 20121212 in French.

I cannot add a gmail account. The screen is there but button "Next" is always disabled. Also, the label of field "Nom" is not clear: should this be my real name or my gmail login?

This build is way too old; please update your device and re-open or re-file if the problem still exists.  The placeholder phrasings have been updated with the fix for bug 809552 landed yesterday and which should be present in today's nightly.  In English, "Name" is now "Your name".

So, what should I do? Flash the device?
Just upgraded. Works nicely with 20121226.

It seems there is a regression with gmail account. It is not possible to set that account. The device remains in this screen: Please wait while your account is set up.
Unagi build:

1. Open Email
2. Type your name, user address and Password
3. Click on Next

Just after reproducing the issue, tested with another account and it worked, but with the first one is still failing.
The accounts are both aaaaa@gmail.com, the only difference in principle is the user and password.
Please provide the error code from the account creation failure and a logcat.  Please see:

After many tries and wating for long time I got my account working and although I remove it, restart the device, cannot reproduce the problem. I will follow the instructions to get a logcat in case I am able to reproduce the problem again
Couldn't create an account from gaia master (be85eeb1c6fa4d999f4a42ab7be0fc46ade9226a), nothing displayed (stays on "please wait while your account is set up", like in Comment 4).

In the logs: 

I/GeckoDump( 7426): ERR: onerror reporting: Error: Load failed: activesync/codepages/AirSync: undefined @ app://e
mail.gaiamobile.org/js/ext/alameda.js : 834

Don't have a proper regression range but it works at 76185af4659982e750bb625f78bd5c81346eefb0.
Note that comment 8 was spun out to be bug 853908 because it was a new regression which is now fixed.

Does this still need to be open? It seems everything has been resolved.
I had no issues adding a gmail account with
