Thats what 2 hours of sleep does to you man oh man what was I thinking? I'm glad this worked for you! I'm not sure exactly what else uses `getpwuid()` but a quick search on google
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=getpwuid%28%29+failed+&btnG=Google+Search
Yields quite a few varying results.

You are most welcome - take care!
