It seems that the user/passwd Db cannot follow symlinks or
notcie a change in the dir layout. when i first installed
/home was on the root partiton. i moved it to the /usr
partiton by making a /usr/home and symlinking /home to
/usr/home. this broke every user already created. it seemed
nothing could follow the symlink and caimed there was no
such directory. This happened for most every app (xterms X
config files etc.) I made sure the symlink was correct and
could transver it myself. when I tried to mod the users to
see if that would fix it , it claim no such directory.
I tested it and it works now using recent releases.
Thanks for the report.
