In a new account, first time editing the profile I always get

"Oops! There was a problem updating your profile: unusual error updating your profile -- please try again!"

when trying to save. Any hints on what am I doing wrong?

Something appears to be b0rken; the devs will have been notified. Nothing more we can say on the subject though. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 7 '13 at 12:22
@MartijnPieters - can either of you see any script errors in the console? –  Nick Craver Jan 7 '13 at 12:41
@NickCraver: Sorry, I didn't (try to) reproduce the problem. The error message seemed to indicate an intermediary problem, and I more wanted to indicate that us mere mortals could not help by that message alone. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 7 '13 at 12:44
@MartijnPieters - ah, well it indicates a problem with client JS so not in our logs...I can't repro here either. –  Nick Craver Jan 7 '13 at 12:45
Please see if you have any errors in your console, it's likely a user script is in play here causing issues, unless you're seeing problems everywhere which means you're not getting our JavaScript properly. –  Nick Craver Jan 7 '13 at 12:46
It seems to have been fixed. Today the edit profile page looked very different from yesterday. Definitely there was something wrong (or not being loaded properly) yesterday. I did not notice any errors on my side (client JS) but confess that wasn't checking it.. –  nando Jan 8 '13 at 14:01
