The only thing that springs to mind is if the program creating that
directory doesn't have enough access to /home, it won't be able to
create the folder.  You can try running 'chmod 777 /home' to
temporarily allow full access to the folder, then see if the home
directory is created, but it could also be something as simple as the
folder /home/hidden/zuser can't be created because /home/hidden doesn't
exist.  If you create /home/hidden by hand it may start working.
