Real (humanoid) users or virtual users (for daemons and such)?

How did you set the permissions of the home directories? This looks like
there were symlinks to those directories and you didn't use -h for
chmod(1). Or did you run a (manual) system update with a umask of 077?
Well, I'd put those directories on a read-only partition and/or use
chflags(1), anyway.
