I deleted and re-created the user. Now it works.

Note: I do not want to start any flame here against Debian. 
I'm a real Linux lover : I come from a Fedora system and simply decided to 
install few days ago Debian Etch-4 to give a try after reading that it was 
(after a long delay it seems) available in a stable status and because, after 
all, Debian is at the origin of so popular distros like (K)Ubuntu. 
But I have to admit (once again : I really do not want to start here any flame 
and I really respect Debian) that such problem is cumbersome.
