Public bug reported:

some of my users are having a homedir below another dir in home e.g.


The user dir is shared by an nfs mount to several boxes.

It seems not to possible to connect bugfree by ssh from such a user to
another box.

The user can login by password. But then he is not in his homedir. He is
in /

If one calls ssh-copy-id he gets:
mkdir: cannot create directory `.ssh': Permission denied
/bin/bash: .ssh/authorized_keys: No such file or directory

For a user below /home e.g. /home/NAME everything works as supposed
