I simply checked my /home on two machines and because they are different
to yours I suggested it.  Maybe it is not the problem:

# mkdir /test
# ll -d test
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Jun  8 08:59 test
# cd test
# mkdir myuser
# chown myuser:myuser myuser
# chmod 700 myuser
# ll -d /home/myuser
drwx------  102 myuser myuser 4096 Jun  8 08:58 /home/myuser

$ cd /test/myuser
$ touch test
$ ll
