QA Testscase: Installation with mountpoint inside future $HOME?

I've just hit a bug which causes $HOME to be owned by root if a 
mountpoint is created inside $HOME during install, see [1]. I recall in 
the past already occasionally hitting related problems, such as:
- /etc/skel/* not being copied to $HOME
- Files from /etc/skel/* being copied, but still being owned by root 
inside $HOME

Might it be a good idea to create a QA testcase for such scenarios? A 
possible draft is here [2].
