Some encrypted backups display username as [Update Needed] when booting

I started using FileVault 2 to encrypt the disks that I'm backing up to. Usually this works fine and I can boot from the backups, even though they're encrypted. There is a pre-boot login screen just like there is when I boot from the original system drive.

However sometimes when I try to boot from the backup disk, the pre-boot login screen contains a weird-looking option to log in as a user called "[Update Needed]" or "Guest User" - and all the other OS X account usernames from my original system drive are missing.

Any idea why this is?
