    Hi,

    No news since a week, maybe you have found the solution, maybe not.
    If yes, just say it.
    If no, can you precisely (I mean copy/past) tell us what you are doing in order to create an user from command line ?

    Can you check that /home/$USER is created when using the command line ?
    For example, if you create user "bla" with "adduser bla", what is the content of /home/bla ?
