Bug description:
  The release of Ubuntu you are using (lsb_release -rd):
  Description:  Ubuntu 17.10
  Release:      17.10

  This is a fresh installation of Ubuntu 17.10 from the mini.iso.
  I select only default options + [Ubuntu Desktop] installation.

  What you expected to happen:
  My home folder contains the following folders with correct and safe 
permissions after the first login:
  drwx------ 11 user user 4096 Dec  2 17:40 .config
  drwx------  3 user user 4096 Dec  2 17:39 .local

  What happened instead:
  I received these folders after the first login:
  drwxr-xr-x 11 user user 4096 Dec  2 17:40 .config
  drwxr-xr-x  3 user user 4096 Dec  2 17:39 .local
  It is not safe. Any user can access to my .config folders and read for 
example my mail databases

  I'm trying to create a new user...:
  sudo useradd -m user2
  sudo passwd user2
  ... and login then.
  It has the same problem:
  drwxr-xr-x 10 user2 user2 4096 Dec  2 19:44 .config
  drwxr-xr-x  3 user2 user2 4096 Dec  2 19:44 .local
