Well, yes it works for me however my home directories are not created
permissions by default. Everytime I use "useradd" the home
directory is created as 700 - as it should be.
Your home directories are created with permissions 775 by default?
What is your UMASK value in /etc/login.defs? It should be 077, which
creates the home directories as 700.
