I wouldn't hurt to check first to see if /home/"userid" ownership matches
"userid" and that permissions look something like "drwx------". There may be no
need to re-run the script. Your script sets ownership, but not permissions. If
perms look something like "dr-x------" or "dr-xr-xr-x" then they could read but
not write to their directories. Check subdirectories too; depending on your
login manager they could be the problem (i.e. ~/.dmrc).
