Not quite. If you delete users home (or even entire /home structure),
users will still be able to login. If that was an admin user, then with
sudo you can do all the work, and you should do only this:

sudo mkdir /home/$username
sudo chown $username.$usergroup /home/$username
sudo chmod 07[5|0]0 /home/$username
sudo rm -rf /tmp/*$username*

And the problem is solved.

This is question for -users, not -devel. Please, next time post there.

Thank you.
