No, it's not. The problem was that maildrop wants to have homedir owned by the
user whose uid was read form database. Changing owner of /home/users/ to
1002:1000 helped (as a temprary solution of course). The error message is
misleading, should be something like "home dir not owner by 1002:1000".

Right. The above is just in case anybody tries to find solution to "Invalid
home directory permissions - world writable" problem.
