Sorry, I was mistaken.
When I tested this in an earlier version, I was unable to proceed
without entering an email address. Having gone back and re-tested, I
am only able to replicate the behaviour if the string I enter for
"Real name" contains the "@" character. This also holds true for
1.4.10. The --expert flag was/is not the difference, it's the presence of "@"
in the "Real name" field.
