What do these commands produce:
% pw user show -n root
% pw user show -n toor
--- the default results look like this:
(be particularly suspicious if the toor line doesn't end in your choice
of shell -- a blank value gets you the default shell, which is /bin/sh)
# pwd_mkdb -p /etc/master.passwd
Otherwise, did you run mergemaster at all during the last few weeks?
Did you run mergemaster without sufficient care and attention when it
asked you if it should replace your /etc/master.passwd with the default
version from /usr/src?
Or perhaps you attempted to merge old and new versions of master.passwd
without conspicuous success?
If you have managed to make mincemeat out of /etc/master.passwd, fear
not. There should be a backup of the old version of file in /var/backups
