What you are seeing is the intended behaviour. For some reason,
authentication of the 'cryptguy' user fails, and the user then instead gets
the default access level defined for the host that the user is on.

The problem could be caused by a wrong password hash. You should start off
by checking it, for instance by using it for some user in the system passwd
file and then trying a login as that user.
