No. In this case we are talking about default user created during F17 installation. I'm guessing 
that maybe KDE does something naughty?

In addition, just an hour ago, I tested useradd and s-c-u, both create user home with 700 
permissions. Haven't tested KDE utility. Frankly, I don't even know which utility would that be 
(personally I use useradd for this stuff).
