Associating "Social Accounts" with Transifex #75

--Description of the problem--

Transifex offers (registered) users the otpion to associate social media accounts with their Transifex account. This function doesn't work as expected.

Expected: After associating, you could use Twitter, Google+, ... to log in as "User X"

What happens: Instead of "associaating the acccount, a new empty user account is created, for each account you'd try to associate with the Transifex account.
These accounts aren't linked to your Transifex account and aren't member of any projects / teams.

//Steps to recreate problem//

  1. Log in to Transifex.
  2. Go to your user account.
  3. Click "Settings".
  4. Go to Social Login.
  5. Choose a provider to associate with.
  6. You are now taken to the page for the provider to "associate" the account - which is expected. When approving, however, you see that you're now logged in as another, new user. When checking your social Login, you'll see the Social Media account is associated with this brand new account, and not the account you were hoping to associate it with.

Users that try to use this option will end up with multiple accounts.

In my case, using this feature created the users 'torettox84' and 'stevenzeegers' which I have no use for.

//Additional problem//

Hi, this was fixed some time ago but we neglected to update this ticket. I'm closing as fixed.
