Did /nonexistent go away in FreeBSD 9 ?

I point a particular application to a 7.x system using a login with 
/nonexistent as the home directory and /sbin/nologin as the shell.

I copied the line from 'vipw' into a new 9.x system, and now when I try to 
connect, the application complains.

I also have securelevel=2 ...

So, did something change with /nonexistent in FreeBSD 9, or does 
securelevel=2 screw this up somehow ??
