Thanks for taking care of it.  For what it's worth,

I'm not sure whether to keep 96b9e0e (config: treat user and xdg
config permission problem as errors) in the long run, BTW.  There have
been multiple reports about dropping privileges and not being able to
access the old HOME, and I'm not convinced any more that the
predictability is worth the breakage for such people.  Though checking
if $HOME is inaccessible and treating that case specially would be
even worse...

Insights welcome.
