Renaming Mac home directory results in docker for mac failing to start #1209
Upon renaming a Mac user's home folder, Docker for Mac should continue to work after logging into the renamed account, or have a (relatively) easy way for users to update paths used by d4m, without having to delete ~/Library/Containers/com.docker.docker
Currently after renaming a user's home directory, rebooting, and logging back in, the user will find Docker for Mac will no longer start.

Steps to reproduce the behavior
In case others run into this,
It'd be nice if we could just edit a config file to straighten this out, though...even if that's a plist.
Thanks for your report! I am not very surprised this breaks as we don't test it at all and renaming the home directory is not something that we should expect to happen very often ... Anyway, I have escalated the issue to our UI team and we will keep you updated about the progress.
