Functionally yes, but I suspect there were any user to use 'root
preexec' as you state. I think we use 'add user script' instead.

Without this patch, we cannot avoid to prevent showing a user's home
dir that does not exist. I think this is more severe than yours.

One solution is to add an option that allows to enable this feature.
