Brilliant...I definately know where I went wrong - It was due to as I mentioned, not initially jailkit'ing but I found many posts saying to do ispconfig_update.sh to reconfigure services (after I updated jailkit) however when I ran that it wouldn't update as there was no update to that version. running SVN worked so I left it, until I found this problem.
NOOOWWWW I decided to skip one automated step slightly and run update_from_tgz.sh which I realised is the script that the ispconfig_update.sh runs once it confirms a version number update is available...so ran this, it reconfigured master database, and services, and I dare say overwrite all php files, etc. Now when I create a new database it creates all the user permissions on it as well..Subsequently when creating a new Client I can immediately go to the website tab and create a website and the user appears, instead of being a blank line (due to "name" field being blank in sys_group table)
THANK YOU heaps for time - not sure if a manual update will help original OP - but I would suggest giving it a go, and choose to "Reconfigure Master database permissions..." These may be totally different issues, but I don't see any harm in running the update manually just to make sure...of course I defer to the ISPConfig expert opinion on this...
