OK, so that does yield. . .rather different results than it used to.

Poking around with id compared to the the contents of /etc/passwd
(from mkpasswd) and also compared to what my x86 install (not using
snapshot) does, I see one glitch and one difference:

Glitch (also true for x86 1.7.29-2):
  id returns effectively immediately for all users and non-users _except_:
   > time id Administrators
    uid=544(+Administrators) gid=544(+Administrators)
    groups=11(+Authenticated Users),544(+Administrators)

    real    0m2.296s
    user    0m0.015s
    sys     0m0.015s


 [x86 1.7.29]> id TrustedInstaller
   uid=4294967294(TrustedInstaller) gid=4294967294(TrustedInstaller)

 [x86_64 snapshot]> id TrustedInstaller
   id: TrustedInstaller: no such user

That's all I've found, happy to try other tests anyone can suggest.
