The last few lines of your passwd file as above look thrashed: There 
should be linefeeds instead of the spaces before "mike" and "freddy", 
like this:

(...)
gdm:x:42:42::/var/lib/gdm:/sbin/nologin
mike:x:0:500:Mike "Anonymous" Tester:/home/mike:/bin/bash
freddy:x:501:501:Freddy Tester:/home/freddy:/bin/bash

Not sure if this is your entire issue or if it just ended up like that 
here due to some mail transport issue.
