Functions getpwnam() and getpwuid() are not reentrant. This is not a problem if their use is guarded with GIL and extensions don't call them directly. But if release GIL, we should use reentrant getpwnam_r() and getpwuid_r() instead. There may be an open issue for this, but I can't find it now.

If getpwnam_r() and getpwuid_r() are not available (are there such modern platforms?) we should use getpwnam() and getpwuid() without releasing GIL.
