FYI, I ran into this problem and modified my etc/passwd-grp.bat.done
bin/mkpasswd -l > etc/passwd
bin/mkgroup -l > etc/group
/bin/mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd
/bin/mkgroup -l > /etc/group
And now I'm displaying my user name on the prompt.

For some reaon your /etc/passwd isn't configured. You didn't install
via setup.exe or you updated your system from 9x, perhaps?
Anyway, use mkpasswd and mkgroup tools to generate /etc/passwd and
/etc/group files and care EXPLICITELY for the home dir and shell
