I saw similar error on Python 2.6 installed on freeBSD.
I had test SVN server and wrote pre-commit hook using python. When remote developer commited his changes to repository, hook called os.path.expanduser and exception was raised:
        #  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/", line 259, in expanduser
        #    userhome = pwd.getpwuid(os.getuid()).pw_dir
        #KeyError: 'getpwuid(): uid not found: 12345'

So its not a just-Linux issue.
