I am having the same problem. With the requirements for ecommerce merchants to meet PCI compliance having user directories enabled so they can be accessed by a ~ in the url is flagged as a security vulnerability aswell in general it is a general good practice security measure to disable such so I imagine this has to do with php_uname.

I would really like this to get addressed by the magento community because i would imagine the problem will be occurring more frequently.
