As discussed w/ Victor, a process should be able to run Python even if its user does not have a home.

So the call to _getuserbase() should be protected. 

But then we have to control that all the code that uses  CONFIG_VARS['userbase'] is protected when the value is not set.

I am thinking about per-user installation and such things: we need to make sure everything is checking this.
