Of course it is doing all this! It is behaving same way as "useradd" and 
that's the entire purpose.

And of course all that is done for the guest users too, on every re-login.

It's already in there and has been there. It would be impossible to test 
gumd without it, because you wouldn't be able to login the created users.

And no, we are not taking it out for some Tizen crazyness.

If you want to do it that way, don't use gumd at all, but write your own 
implementation right into your security manager. There's no point in 
having gumd at all then.
