If i create an encrypted home directory for a non-root user as root user, I mean:

ecryptfs-setup-private -u kok

After that, when kok login it fails to mount:

Failed to detect wrapped passphrase version: Permission denied

The problem is easy fixed doing chown -R kok /home/kok

But I wonder if this is the expected behaviour of ecryptfs-utils.
