I am finishing installing a amd 64 FreeBSD 11.1 with Gnome 3.
When I configured there a user, I did not input the User Name field; so I was perplexed when GDM booted, and showed me a user as "User &"; it turned out
passwd filled it that way.
The thing is that I edited
/etc/passwd to put there a proper name; and GDM showed it properly.
However upon changing the password of that user with
passwd as root, the user name field was changed back to "User &".
I have not yet tested if using
chfn will fix it for good, will test it at home.
However, I am very quite curious, where is that "User &" coming or being restored from?
