It only works if the user is in /etc/passwd

We crate the user's profile and home directories when the user is first
created. Just copy an /etc/skel local user to a dummy user and dump this
as the user's home directory. Don't forget to set the uid:gid of the
dummy to that of the new user and chown it.
