Bug#495628: general: setting system users' homes in their data directory slower security scanning

Package: general
Severity: normal

putting the home directory of users like postgres or especially backuppc 
in their data directory makes routine scans of tiger over the homes directory 
for user related suspect files work significantly slower.

there is no reason to scan those directories, since they contain structured 
data only, but only accidental logins of those users may bring bad thing here, 
and this should be the second reason not to set their homedirs here.
