I'm not sure I'm convinced by the diagnosis here.  Since olpc-utils v
0.63, we've fixed up permissions for /home/olpc to make it world
eXecutable, in olpc-configure.  Perhaps the bug here is that you are
running the customization key *after* first boot, instead of doing the
tested reflash/customization procedure.  It's possible that old
versions of olpc-configure wouldn't re-configure /home after the
customization key?
