It doesn't on Linux/UNIX too, and I think it is OK.
the administrator should be well aware of the users enabled in the system.

As for your setup, you may want to make the condor user unable to
login,since condor user doesn't need to actually login into the
system, and processes under his credentials are spawned by exec(),
bypassing the authorization via login.

so then, condor user will not add remote threats.
Under linux this is easily done by adding an arbitraty ( usually "!"
caracter ) to /etc/passwd file entry of that user ( condor ).
