I'm sure what you mean, you show an OS X Desktop but your talking PC?
If I saw that on a Mac Desktop I'd try starting in Safe Mode and see if the problem still occurs.

I figured it out actually.
Looking at some similar issues here in the forum, looked like a permissions issue on /System/Library/User Templates folder. That's what it was. Fixed permissions, logs in fine now.
Not sure how permissions got whacked on just that folder of a new image, could have happened in the cloning process.

Actually this still occurs, it seems to be bug in 10.8.2. The permissions that OS X sets by default are correct according to OS X. If you change them, Disk Util will change them back.
Working with Apple on the issue. Has to be a bug. Does not occur in 10.7.5, or 10.8.0
User never gets created in dscl. Finder hangs / crashes. No Apple menu bar, question marks icons in the dock. All this on a clean OS 10.8.2 from Apple Recovery HD.
Anyone seen anythoing like this.

I have this exact same issue as well with OS X 10.8.2. Permissions have been repaired, bind the Mac to AD, reboot and use a user's credentials to create the standard user account but Finder hangs/relaunches continuously. I've repaired permissions on the drive and everything is fine.

Running into this exact issue for one specific user on 10.8.3. He didn't create a mobile account when he first logged on, but that's about it. Everything in AD looks fine for him.

We also have this exact same problem with our campus AD and Mountain Lion.
Our workaround is to enable mobile accounts in the AD plugin and then this does not happen and login works like normal.
This problem does not happen with any 10.7.5 computers we have.
