Apologies for the double post but I just noticed that the custom validation for the email never seems to run during the AJAX call. If the email is already in use it fails with an error when the form is submitted but the AJAX never tells me the email is in use and neither does the AJAX response (even when the response is HTML).
Nevermind, there was a typo in the email used in the system.
