The home directive makes certain common assumptions about the struture
of your file hierarchy.

The name of the home directory must correspond to a name associated with
a uid, even if the home directory is not owned by that uid.

For example, this user account would cause trouble:


Running cfagent with -d 2 produces:

    cfengine: directory corresponds to no user richard - ignoring

So if you rely on the home directive, make sure this matches the way you
organize your machines, because otherwise some actions that you expect
to happen may not.
