Check /etc/passwd for the user you are on this machine.  It would appear
that the home directory listed there is '/'.  I'm not sure why.  If rerunning
mkpasswd -l >/etc/passwd and mkdroup -l >/etc/group doesn't fix this (see
the -d flag if you need domain users), then just edit the path to point 
somewhere else.  //<anything> represents a partial UNC path which isn't 
what you want.
