This is most certainly wrong. Your 777 permissions on /home are far too,
err, permissive.

$ rpm -qf /home

$ rpm -qlv filesystem|grep home
drwxr-xr-x    2 root    root                0 Mar 12  2004 /home

So, it should be 755, at least in FC2 and any other Linux distro I 've
used so far. If you do "rpm -V filesystem" on your machine it should
point out the wrong permissions (M).
