I am just reporting that I sorted this out myself.
The problem was to do with our automount setup, and the fact that the
first time you login and type 'pwd' the (home) directory given is actually
the mount point of the home directory listed under /tmp_mnt.
An easy fix is just to type 'cd' before runng pvs.
This results in 'pwd' reporting the directory listed in /etc/passwd for
that user.
