It works fine for other users as much as I can tell.
The problem seems to be with one specific user.

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd myUser
myUser:*:1049686:1049089:U-UK\myUser,S-1-5-21-892078619-2706518417-4190201681-1110:/home/myUser:/bin/bash

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd user1

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd user1

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$

myUser@dom1-job11 ~

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd myUser
myUser:*:1049686:1049089:U-UK\myUser,S-1-5-21-892078619-2706518417-4190201681-1110:/home/myUser:/bin/bash

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd myUser
myUser:*:1049686:1049089:U-UK\myUser,S-1-5-21-892078619-2706518417-4190201681-1110:/home/myUser:/bin/bash

myUser@dom1-job11 ~
$ getent passwd myUser
myUser:*:1049686:1049089:U-UK\myUser,S-1-5-21-892078619-2706518417-4190201681-1110:/home/myUser:/bin/bash

Do me a favor and try,

getent passwd myUser

and see if that works better.  Thanks.
