I just installed, and in fact /etc/passwd is copied during the first execution
of native-install.

I looked at the sources of native-install. It copies
/usr/share/base-passwd/passwd.master to /etc/passwd if it doesn't exist, so I
guess your problem is caused by either a corrupted passwd.master or an
existing passwd (which is impossible, since you installed on a clean disk).

Probably you should just reinstall, and everything will work.
