NullUnrestrictedUser __str__ broken

Bug Description

AccessControl/, NullUnrestrictedUser - the getUserName method returns a tuple of (None,None). Unfortunately, it derives from BasicUser, which defines __str__ to be getUserName. Thus, when trying to coerce the emergency user when an emergency user doesn't exist, as happens in BasicUserFolder's validate method ("if emergency and user is emergency"), a TypeError is raised, because __str__ doesn't return a string, it returns a tuple.

Either __str__ should be fixed, probably to return str() of getUserName, and/or NullUnrestrictedUser should be set to be false - add a def __len__(self): return 0
