Yes, but since there is no entry for the home dir in passwd for these
users, the association with /mnt/userdata/ must come from the way Cygwin
interprets them.  Is there any harm to set a different (maybe even
non-existing) home directory in passwd for these accounts?  That would
likely solve that problem, I'd think.
