Description of problem:

I want to use the new kickstart keyword 'user' to create local users, but doing
so the newly created users doesn't have their home created.

I use these kind of lines :

user --name=prof --groups=500 --homedir=/home/prof --uid=500
--password=wMi8V*****6s --iscrypted

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create users entry in kickstart
2.install your FC6
3.the users exists but doesn't have a home
Actual results:
users exists (in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow) but doesn't have their home

Expected results:
users created with home, ready to use

I learn something new about the standard python library all the time.  This will
be fixed in the next build of anaconda in Rawhide.  As a workaround, you can
just add the mkdir call to a %post script.
