Go to YourHardDisk/System/Library/PreferencePanes/

and see if there is more than one Accounts.prefPane file in there.

When you click on them in System Preferences, are they different in any way? Or do they both appear to contain the same information?

just delete the ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.preferencepanes.cache file.

this will also fix the problem with disappearing preferences.
