User Home folders are created at logon when Deep Freeze Mac is enabled when automatic login is enabled.

Summary:
When Automatic Login is enabled for a user, and the user is mapped to user ThawSpace, the OS may create user's home folder.

Product:
Deep Freeze Mac 5.7 and earlier versions.

Description:
If Automatic Login is enabled for a specific user and the user is mapped to the user ThawSpace, at times the ThawSpaces are not mounted before the user is logged in. This causes the system to assume the user's home directory is missing and proceeds to create one in /Volumes, resulting in two /Volumes/user (one is a ThawSpace and the other is a folder).

Furthermore, the Finder may not launch and menu bar is missing.

Workaround:
Disable Automatic Login.

Note: logout and logging back in will temporarily fix the issue, however it will still leave the folder.
