The code looks reasonable, but I don't really understand the point. What use
case is helped by this? Also note that this might use an unexpected directory
if there are multiple /etc/passwd lines for the same UID.

Apart from that, if you want this fallback here, you'll also want it for tilde
expansion without a user name (the tilde is currently left unchanged if HOME is
not set or empty).
