Can't reproduce. Tested in IE 9 and Firefox 7. Sounds like a JavaScript conflict with a plugin or theme.

I just tested this issue with ALL plugins DEACTIVATED and using the Twenty Eleven theme. The category is added to the WP_terms table, but the term_ID and term_order are set to NULL. Shouldn't at least the term_ID have a value other than NULL?

Works fine for me at 18714 and in 3.2.1.

Please close this ticket. I found the culprit. During the move to a new domain, the term_ID table in the db had gotten mangled, which removed the indexes, and removed properties of key fields. My appologies for 'bugging' you guys on this...;-) Paul
