Default /etc/passwd "emptied"

Our server was recently upgraded from lenny to squeeze.
After an upgrade of ISPconfig to latest version, a few days passed without a hitch.
A user set a new password in the controlpanel and that emptied the /etc/passwd and only added that one user.

Any idea what may have caused this?

I have backup of /etc/passwd so I will go onsite to restore the passwd file ASAP.

Is there anyway to have ISPconfig be able to "restore" the file properly?
