On MacOSX 10.6.3 ... I could not figure out a way to get a user home directory
to have a SPACE in it anywhere in the path at all. The command "chpass" is the
way you change the user information for a user (users (and thus directories)
don't show up in /etc/passwd anywhere on MacOSX 10.6.3) and it would not let a
space exist anywhere in the path.

If someone has an idea on how to move a users home directory in MacOSX to a
directory with a space somewhere along the path, happy to give it a shot.
