Default ?users-admin default /home/user permissions?

I'm on edubuntu 8.04.3 which is continually updated.

The system runs as an LTSP server and has about 120 users.



When I use the users-admin tool to make new users the newly created user's home folder gets these permissions: drwxr-xr-x.



I find it strange that others has r and x permissions and I definitely don't want that in our environment.



I've read and searched around without finding any way to get users-admin to change it's default behaviour.



I've set the umask from 022 to 007(), that works for general dir and file behaviour, but it didn't affect users-admin.




Anyone in the know on this?

Yes, that has not anything to do with the newly created homedirs.

One way would be to change the permisson on /etc/skel itself (if that
tool uses /etc/skel), since that normally is the "birthplace" of newly
created homedirs, or have a look at /etc/adduser.conf or
/etc/default/useradd.
