Ouch. Recent libuser versions refuse to do anything about a home directory
(... which should cause the whole "create user" process to fail) if $HOME
already exists - and this is necessary for security reasons.
I'd much rather prohibit this case - if you want to set up a mountpoint
within $HOME, create the user first. It would admittedly be a really ugly
policy, however I think it's still better than the security risk.
