Well I use optional in
session optional /lib/security/$ISA/pam_mkhomedir.so skel=/etc/skel/
I had the same problem. Initial login runs as user, no as root, and have no
rights for writing.
See, for example, man sshd_config:
Specifies whether sshd separates privileges by creating an
unprivileged child process to deal with incoming network traffic.
After successful authentication, another process will be created
that has the privilege of the authenticated user. The goal
of privilege separation is to prevent privilege escalation by
containing any corruption within the unprivileged processes.
The default is "yes".
Set apropiate chmod to /home. I used /home/samba/ for on the fly home
directories and did not change /home permissions.
