If you try to create a user with a home directory at a non existent point
in the directory structure, Linuxconf/userconf fails with a
uninformative error message.

For example, if one tries to create a user "test" with home directory


and /home/customer doesn't exists, userconf fails with the message
"Password did not change"

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
