Package: passwd
Version: 1:4.0.3-30.8
Severity: normal


postamt:/home/t# /usr/sbin/useradd -m -d /home/x/-/testruebe testruebe
useradd: cannot create directory /home/x/-/testruebe

postamt:/home/t# /usr/sbin/useradd -m -d "/home/x/-/testruebe" testruebe
useradd: cannot create directory /home/x/-/testruebe

postamt:/home/t# /usr/sbin/useradd -m -d "/home/x/\-/testruebe" testruebe
useradd: cannot create directory /home/x/\-/testruebe

If I create the /home/x/- directory by hand, useradd works.
