Don't simply hide something! That's security by obscurity. And I'm 100% 
sure, that it will be abused. :-)

Is it neccessary, that users have access to foreign homes? Or is it just 
a misconfiguration?

Here's a HowTo about setting up file shares:
It also describes how to configure permissions. If you use a filesystem 
that supports user_xattr, you can use all ACL stuff windows provides.
