Hi David,

just tried to reproduce it on a default setup test system. 

The first user account is created during installation and is special (no 
Samba account, home dir permission 700). But "chmod o+x ~" is the only 
change required. No need to touch the web server setup, as apache seems 
to be clever enough to get the user home dir correctly. (So maybe the 
d-e-userdir config could be dropped.)

By default all other user accounts have home dir permission 755, and
http://www/~<username> works without any changes.

(Perhaps some hint concerning the first user account should be added to 
the manual?)
