Package: user-setup
Version: 1.28
Severity: minor

user-setup-apply is used by live-initramfs to create a "guest" account
at boot time.  I needed the account to have HOME outside of /home,
because /home is an NFS mount used by non-guest accounts.

Since user-setup-apply seems to end up just calling adduser, this is
no big deal -- I can change DHOME to /tmp in adduser.conf.  But while
RTFSing, I noticed that

        if [ -d "$ROOT/home/$USER" ]; then

Assumes that the new user's home directory will be /home/$USER.  To
fix this, you'd need to parse and understand adduser.conf, so it may
be reasonable to simply WONTFIX this issue.
