The user needs a valid shell otherwise git-push won't work. There is no password by default so this user cannot be logged in remotely; only su/sudo or other methods of local user switching even work.

P.S. This is clearly a lightdm bug; why is it showing users in the login screen with UIDs in the system range? File a bug with them.
