Hi Martin,
first of all, thanks for your interest in Syncope!

I've just tried to replicate your setup and got the same problem: opened
[1] for this - please start it if you want to get notified.

'AccountLink' is (currently) only meaningful for LDAP and
ActiveDirectory connector bundles but might cause misbehaviours when
valued for other connector bundles: I've opened SYNCOPE-221 for this.

Short tip: leave it empty for any connector bundle but LDAP or AD.
