    Since a few days, cpanel uses /home for new users created in the WHM. Although it is set to create it in another place!

    WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.16.0-R18473
    FREEBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p2 amd64 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

    What's wrong?

    Does "the other place" have less available disk space than /home?

    To expand. If your home directory prefix is 'home' and you have /home, /home2, /myhome or any set of directories like that, the one with the least amount of space will be used to store accounts. If you wish for accounts to only go into /home2 and not home, you'll need to make your home directory prefix 'home2' or leave it blank

    This behaviour changed since a few days.. I have set up cPanel to only create accounts in /usr/local/cpanel-home (-> Default Home Directory). No other alternate home directory. /home is symlinked to /usr/home and is on the same mount-point as /usr/local/cpanel-home.

    This seems to be a bug in cpanel. How to fix or prevent?
