First, welcome to Koha!

On http://www.koha-de.org/wiki/Koha/Demo-Installationen I looked for a 
Koha demo installation running 16.05.03 - the one by Turo Technology is 
currently down, but I found one running 16.05.04 by Orex:

http://intra1.orex.es/ (user name and password are both "admin")

I was able to create a new patron category there without experiencing 
any problems.

What are you exactly doing when you're trying to create one? What 
exactly does happen when it fails?

Best wishes, Michael
