Description

Misleading naming / wrong tooltip. Inconsistent use of field "Home Directory".

a) Suppose you set "Home Directory" to /mnt/pool1/homes, and create a user "user1", the new user's home directory will be created as /mnt/pool1/homes/user1. As (usually) desired, but this is not what the tooltip says.
b) If you saved and opened the edit user page again, the same "Home Directory" now magically shows /mnt/pool1/homes/user1 !

Even better: Add a checkbox if you want a home directory to be created within the given path or alternatively use the specified path as home directory directly.

I can verify the directory /mnt/pool1/homes/user1 is created, then Home Directory changes from the user inputted '/mnt/pool1/homes' to '/mnt/pool1/homes/user1'. A checkbox should probably be added to give the option of creating the subdirectory 'user1', but most immediately the tooltip can be updated to report this behavior. As of 11.3-BETA1, this does not seem to be addressed. The subdirectory is not created when '/mnt/pool1/homes/user1' is provided as the Home Directory. Also, the directory will still be created even if the user is not. This seems to be a bug.
