Bug#584967: Bug is related to #580384
I experienced the same problem of no default userid and unable to log in to live using the remastersys script. I am using debian squeeze. Downgrading passwd and live-initramfs to stable fixed my problem, and everything worked ok. I first tried downgrading only passwd to stable -- I got a different error message but the same problem. I did not try downgrading only live-initramfs. #580384 documents the bug in passwd.
