I have also noticed this once, but could not reproduce it since then. This happened to me not too much after the 1.0.1 release, on a vm with 512 mb ram. I later cleared up that machine, as it was too small. So in my case it was either a sporadic thing, a specific commit from guix pull fixed later, or a not obvious out of memory. Wdyt?

This sounds really odd.  Can you share your system configuration?

Do you manage users outside of the Guix configuration system by any
chance?  Or can you reproduce it by simply invoking `guix system
reconfigure` enough times?
