You can get around this problem by moving the user out from /Users

In DiskUtil you can create a new unit in the APFS container for the user
(me) . Then do :
sudo chown me:staff /Volumes/me
sudo chown 0751 /Volume/me
sudo rsync -avH /Users/me/ /Volumes/me
sudo rm -rf /Users/me
sudo dscl . -create Users/me NFSHomeDirectory /Volumes/me

Personally, I don't have any users in /Users - they all have their own
