As the administrative user, I go to "admin/user/create", fill in the
form, and click on the 'Create Account" button.  Drupal gives me a
blank screen.  When I go back to "admin/user/" I see that the account
was successfully created.

I believe that this is due to the function user_admin_create()
returning 'void' on success.  Hence user_create() returns nothing, see

Filter.module, legacy.module, locale.module, node.module,
profile.module, system.module, upload.module, all contain instances of
"return;".  These may also be subject to this problem.

Here's a quick patch - this returns a string "An account has been
created.".  It's a little redundant since the same information is
presented in the drupal_set_message() call.  Any suggestions for more
useful text, or another fix?
