bug#31001: Emacs: "User xyz has no home directory"

Hi there,

After updating Emacs to 25.3 (now sitting at
`/gnu/store/6cflji7h6y0v15dvnccv7paaa7894gdc-emacs-25.3`), on start it
doesn't load configuration and it shows this error:

    Error (initialization): User <USERNAME> has no home directory

I do have a home directory, it's working and my user is in

I found this link to describe the same issue in Nix, and the same fix
that worked for me (i.e. install `nscd`):

I'm running Guix `d4e0ebd016091695adbad8ecdb7de03c0fbd7bf5` under Debian
Sid; relevant entries in `/etc/nsswitch.conf` are:

    passwd:         compat systemd
    group:          compat systemd
    shadow:         compat

Thanks a lot!
