Yes it did and a few other problems I had, thanks.

One more thing, everything under /home is user_home_t but /home itself is
still home_root_t. Is this correct?

$ls -Z /home
drwx------  root     root  system_u:object_r:lost_found_t:s0 lost+found
drwx------  louisg00 users system_u:object_r:user_home_dir_t:s0 louisg00

$ls -Zd /home
drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:home_root_t:s0 /home
