Hi Hubert,

Um, thanks, but...

in addnerd, one of the reported bugs came because users' home directories
wre to be found a long way down a directory chain, e.g.


and *THAT* was the reason for having mkdir include the whole path with the
"-p" option.

So please can you revert the change?


PS. Please don't just go blindly into the user utility and change things -
they are often done that way for a reason. That's the message I was trying
to get across to Luke, and failed.
