The problem was that nobody had a shell of /dev/null (check this in
your /etc/passwd to see if that's your problem). You can upgrade to a
newer base and recreate your system's users or use vipw to cut and
paste the /etc/passwd's.
At the moment there is no way for base to upgrade the system user part
of /etc/passwd only.
