> I don't really know how to investigate that failure.

I don't think that it's specific to AIX, it just depends on the list of users on your system. On my Fedora 21, I have many users which have an empty home directory:

- nobody
- dbus
- polkitd
- usbmuxd
- nm-openconnect
- tcpdump
- qemu
- radvd
- systemd-journal-gateway
- systemd-timesync
- systemd-network
- systemd-resolve
- systemd-bus-proxy

If the test pick one of this user instead of a user with a non-empty home directory, the test fails with the same error. I propose a simple patch: test_pathlib_empty_homedir.patch
