I don't know anything specific to SQL-Ledger; however:

When you're using GDBM-style tables for your data under Interchange, you 
need to use the [tag flag=write table=<some_table>] within the page that 
tries to add data to that table before *any* other access to that table 

Thus, wherever it is that you call the [userdb function=new_account] tag 
to create the new account, you need to ensure that the [tag] occurs 
prior to that.  If you're doing the account creation from within an 
mv_click action or something like that, you need to put the [tag] call 
within that action, as that action will process before anything on the 
resulting page that provides output to the user.

Hope this is helpful.
