akonadictl start crash message

Version:           4.7 (using KDE 4.7.2) 
OS:                Linux

we are working with long path names as home directories, eg. 
/net/lxclust1.testka.somewhere/space/export/home/dreitest for the user dreitest.

Akonadi can not handle this and crashes on startup.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
  * create an user account with a long path as home directory: eg. /local/veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerylongpath/testaccount
  * login into KDE with this account
  * start akonadi by: akonadictl start

Actual Results:  
error messages, akonadi not started

Expected Results:  
akonadi should be running

long hostnames can trigger this too, witnessed a user hit this today. marking confirmed.

I've seen the same problem with network users with a home directory at


whereas for local users the problem doesn't happen.
