Please see if you can get *past* this error - it *might* be completely benign:

The getpwuid_r() message is a generic warning that is displayed for all users, but is usually hidden by the splash screen. It is not the *cause* of any hangs or failures to display the splash screen, so keying on this for a bug report is not useful....
