Bug description:
  [ Impact ]

  When setting an user dir to a folder that is subfolder of $HOME (and
  when $HOME does not match the /etc/passwd defined home for the user),
  the ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs is wrongly generated.

  [ Test case ]

   1) env HOME=/tmp/temp-home xdg-user-dirs-update
   2) find /tmp/temp-home/
   3) should list generated XDG user directories
   4) /tmp/temp-home/.config/user-dirs.dirs should mention them

  Launching something like:
   - env HOME=/tmp/temp-home ./xdg-user-dirs-update --set DOWNLOADS 

  Should modify /tmp/temp-home/.config/user-dirs.dirs so that it contains:

  [ Regression potential ]

  Xdg folders could be generated in wrong locations.
