[Adduser-devel] Bug#397916: adduser: unclear warning message

Package: adduser
Version: 3.99
Severity: minor

I occasionally see this message (sometimes during package installation):

    Warning: that home directory does not belong to the user you are currently creating.

But I don't find any information about what "that" home directory might be.
Either the directory should be spelled out in the message, or it should be
something like "the home directory specified on the command line" or whatever
it is, although I would prefer the former.
