Bug Description

Users who don't have a home directory, or can't write to their home directory cannot use run-one, as the mkdir in $HOME fails.

Solve this by testing ownership and writeability of $HOME. When that fails, safely use and create a temporary directory.

    - ensure that users who either have no home directory, or cannot
      write to their home directory (e.g. daemon), can use run-one
