Wait, what?

I was running a script and I didn’t parse something correctly, it ended up creating a Unix user named ''. You know, an empty string.

Is this supposed to be a bug?

According to pw_checkname in pw_user of pw(8), it’s not rejected.

If you think this is supposed to be a bug, please let me know.
