What happens? Does the system boot OK generally but fail to allow you to
login? Anything in logs? "systemctl status /home/$USER" tell you
anything (assuming it's a regular mount, but I guess this is
unlikely...) Anything else we can use to debug with?

This happens if /var is on a separate partition. Is this the case with
you? I'll have to think about how to handle that more gracefully.
