A peek at the source shows that it doesn't have a debug option, which
is pretty strange.

Are you using an automounter on /home?  If you configure syslog to log
debug messages (by adding a line "*.debug /var/log/debug" to
/etc/syslog.conf and restarting syslogd), do the logs indicate the
reason why it might have failed?
