This bug are symptom of the following issue:
The user's shell return instantly.
The python script are trying to run chroot / sudo -u username -- id -u in order to fetch the uid.
Unfortunally the users shell terminate instantly and the id command are not invoked.

testcase 1:
try press ctrl+alt f1 and try login as the user
result: userlongs in but returns to login promt instantly, the shell have died.

testcase 2:
command: chroot / sudo -u root -- id -u
returns: 0

command: chroot / sudo -u username -- id -u
returns nothing: ''
