Strange. What could be the problem then? The code looks something like this:

#define USER_NAME_FROM_ENV(s) do {		\
  (s) = getenv("LOGNAME");			\
  if (!(s))					\
    (s) = getenv("USER");			\
} while (0)




      if (!options->user)
	  argp_error(state, "No user name given. Use the -l option, or set LOGNAME 
in the environment.");
