I have Debian, Ubuntu and Windows 7 installed on this laptop. Their
/homes are on different partitions, but I can access (read + write)
/home of Debian from Ubuntu and the opposite way, when I mount them.
I think that it's because both users were created in installation of
distribution and have same uid.
